Maryland Crab Dip

During the summer of 2004, while attending a week-long workshop at Goddard Spaceflight Center in Greenbelt Maryland, I was introduced to Maryland crab dip (in addition to learning about a “New Paradigm in Earth and Space Science Education”).  Upon returning home, I found a recipe that is very similar to the dip I enjoyed during my travels.

The recipe for this dip can be found at  The only changes I recommend are to use 1/2 c. of light sour cream and 1/2 c. of light (but not fat free) cream cheese, add as much crab meat as can be reasonably stirred into the dip, and top with the sharpest cheddar you can find; I like Cabot’s Hunter’s Seriously Sharp because it is very sharp, but melts nicely.
