Spicy Crab Dip

Io sono malata.

Yesterday, I learned how to say "I am sick" in Italian.
Quite the useful phrase to know, though I hope
not to need to use it while in Italy next month.

I figured I'd share a recipe from the wine and cheese party JD and I had a few weeks ago.
JD made a crab dip so delicious that it disappeared before I had time to take a picture.
He found the recipe on the Food Network website.

You will need:
1 pound jumbo lump crabmeat, free of shells
1 cup grated pepper jack cheese
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup grated Parmesan
1/4 cup green onions, minced, optional
5 to 6 roasted garlic cloves or 2 cloves minced
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons fresh lemon or lime juice
1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
Salt and pepper

JD added his own twist to the recipe by sprinkling shredded cheddar cheese on top.
This is optional of course.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
Combine all of the ingredients in a casserole and gently stir until thoroughly mixed.
Bake for 40 minutes.
Serve hot with crackers or bread.

Here is a link to the recipe.
