This Crockpot Hot Crab Dip recipe is the perfect appetizer! Lump crab meat, cream cheese, milk, and green onion - feel free to serve this with crackers or veggie dippers!
We love us some crab dip in this house! Actually, I should change that to: we are obsessed with all things shellfish in this family! The boys absolutely love shrimp in any dish, and Wesley and Paul are completely addicted to crab legs. Paul has eaten them so much over the years that I actually suspected he may have brought on a shellfish allergy! Luckily, he hasn't had any other reactions so he can keep enjoying his beloved seafood.
We're planning our first ever big family vacation in two months, so I've been trying REALLY HARD to keep to my grocery budget each week. It's difficult with three kids, especially when one of those kids is a toddler and is constantly trying new foods, deciding which ones he likes and doesn't like. At almost 18 months old, Reuben will eat any fruit or carb I put in front of him, even meat, but absolutely hates vegetables. Just like his older brother, of course!
One of the ways I keep to sticking to my grocery budget is by shopping at my local grocery outlet. They recently had containers of fresh lump crab meat for $2.99! With our seafood lovers in this house, I stocked up. Paul made us crab meat omelettes one morning - SO GOOD! I've always been a huge fan of scratch-and-dent grocery stores, so if you haven't Googled to see if there's one near you, definitely put that on your to-do list!

This crab dip is absolutely perfect for a party, potluck gathering, or even just a movie night at home with your family. We thought this dip was best with buttery crackers, but it worked well with celery sticks, too if you're looking for a low carb appetizer.
