A bowl Cheese dip made with crab and bacon sits in a black bowl with crackers in the background.What is it about appetizers? I spend more time searching for appetizers than I do a dinner dish. What I want is a recipe that people want to eat but doesn’t take all day to make.

I’m always looking for new ideas and after walking through the isles of my local Baker’s Store went to work.[Tweet “Easy Crab Dip #Recipe @BakersGrocery”]Ingredients used to make Bacon and Crab dip including lump crab, parmesan cheese, cream cheese, bacon, and chives.

It all started with this beautiful container of lump crab meat that I found in the meat department. When you live in Nebraska, you can’t go crabbing (whining) so finding fresh seafood isn’t always that easy to do. This Lump Crab was luscious and I didn’t want to cover up its’ tender sweet flavor. It’s definitely the star of this recipe.

Don’t have time to make it now? Pin it for later!

We had a few folks over and I whipped up this dip. I couldn't believe how easy it was and they all thought I'd bought it at a specialty store. I'll be making this one a lot more!

It would be hard to find something that I didn't think could be improved by adding bacon. :) But this sounds like a fabulous combination, Julie. Bacon-licious and scrumptious!
