Table for Five

Hot Crab Meat Spread from Bumble Bee Foods – Delicious Holiday Appetizer!

Christmas is a time when we gather together with our family and friends to celebrate the joy of the season, and one way we do that is by sharing food. I love holiday parties with Christmas music playing, people wearing festive sweaters, lots of laughing, and of course, lots of food!  One dish that always ends with a practically licked-clean plate is what I call hot crab dip and what Bumble Bee Foods calls Hot Crab Meat Spread. Whatever you call it, it is delicious.

This dish serves 8 to 10 people, so for a larger gathering I’d suggest making two.  This spread tastes best spread on crackers, I like to use Ritz because they’re sturdy and the buttery/salty taste compliments the creaminess of the dip. Just put the plates down and watch this disappear!



Bumble Bee Foods sent me a selection of products and challenged me to make a holiday dish, but then my 1st grader brought home a nasty bug from school and everyone started dropping like flies around here, including me.  Watch for another post where I show you what Hot Crab Meat Spread looks like when I make it!

READER QUESTION: What is your favorite dish to make for a holiday buffet? Share it in a comment!
