Who doesn’t love crab cakes!?! All that tender, flaky crab meat mixed with bell peppers and fried up all golden brown and delicious! And the best part yet? The creamy spicy sauce you get to dip it all in! Now you can have all the flavor and deliciousness of crab cakes any day without having to do all the work of making up the patties, frying them in the oil, and making up the sauce. Just make Slow Cooker Crab Cake Dip and enjoy the taste of crab cakes at your next party…or any day!!
I also love getting crab cakes at restaurants…but seriously! Why do they charge so much? And then they bring out the plate and there are like two crab cakes and and three people. And everyone is eying each other like “who’s the poor fool that’s going to miss out on all this yummyness?!”. You guys don’t do that? We may get a tad to serious about our food around here 😉
Now we have plenty to go around. It’s just a matter of who can get to the crock first to dip their cracker. There may be some hip checking involved. We might have issues. Speaking of crackers I had bought some garlic flavored flatbread crackers and they were perfect for this dip. Other good dipping options would be toasted french bread pieces or fresh and crisp veggies.
I just heard the weather report 🙁 After this teaser of nice(ish) temperatures for the past week or so they are now warning us of an arctic blast of air and chances of snow for the next two weeks. Oh yay..not! I know, I know – it’s winter…what do I expect?! I really do enjoy the changes in seasons but I always feel winter drags on too long. Too much time inside with the kids and we all get a little crazy 🙂 Guess it’s time to go warm up with some more crab cake dip!!
