Crab Cheesecake

If you’re looking for a great brunch recipe, or something special to serve as an appetizer for any other dinner event, look no further. This crab dip is easy to prepare, and it presents beautifully. Served with crackers or grilled baguette, it spreads easily. It’s even delicious with fresh vegetables like carrots or celery. If you prefer not to make it in a springform pan, simply prepare it in an oven-safe casserole dish.

The standout in this recipe is the crab, so be sure not to skimp on quality!
