Hot Crab Dip
Crabs are prepared and eaten as a dish in several different ways all over the world. Some species are eaten whole, including the shell, with other species just the claws and/or legs are eaten. The latter is particularly common for larger crabs.

1/2 cup sour cream

1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 1/4 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1 pinch garlic salt
1 tablespoon milk
1/4 cup cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 lb. crabmeat

Fold the crab meat into cream cheese mixture, and pour into a greased 1−quart casserole. Top with remaining cheese and dust with the paprika.
