Crap Dip with Bleu Cheese

Old Bay must be one of my favorite spices. It can be delicious on just about anything. Maybe not Honey Nut Cheerios. Or a piece of leather. Don’t attempt to eat leather.

I like to add it to an assortment of dishes like omelets, baked chicken breasts, French fries, burgers and even roasted vegetables. There is one sea-dwelling creature that Old Bay was practically made for: crab.  Old Bay is the peanut butter to crab’s jelly.  When I made this dip for the Super Bowl, I knew I should have doubled this recipe! It was devoured.   So, if you are hosting a larger party, please consider the amount of Old Bay lovers in your party and adjust this recipe accordingly.  Enjoy!

P.S. When you think you’ve added enough Old Bay, add another dash!
