Sure, you could used canned, but if you can find (and have time to shell) fresh crab legs, they would be especially tasty in this dip.

I made this as my contribution to a large party. Of all the things there, this is what the hostess got the most rave reviews on. I'm glad she's not the type to take offense. It doesn't make a large quantity -- I doubled the recipe, and it still fit into one bread bowl. I'll be making it again for sure.

I loved it. I doubled the recipe. The 6oz can of crab meat is not equal to 1 cup. I used 4 cans. Also I added 1 tsp of Old Bay Seasoning. It was really good !!!!

Tastes great (I addes some Old Bay Seasoning, too). It makes a nice lunch or dinner for two. Will make it again, with our good fresh Maine crabmeat.
