Hot Crab Dip

When we were little, we went to our parent’s friend’s home and was served hot crab dip. I just remember my siblings and I sheepishly eating bit by bit the whole thing. It has a light creamy crab flavor and a nice texture from the  slightly crisp onions. If you bring this to any party or prepare it as an appetizer, it will be gone in no time.
