What do you do with left over crab?

Still cannot get over how big this crab was!

So after our crab feast we still have quite a bit of yummy crab meat left and one of our favorite left over crab recipes is Hot Crab Artichoke Dip. It's super easy. I don't recall where I got this recipe, I have been making it for a long time though. It's a go-to dish for parties, especially this time of year when crab is actually on the affordable side. My daughter has made it with canned crab and imitation crab as well and says it is still very good. I just prefer fresh crab :)~

1 block of cream cheese (8 oz)
1/4 C. Sour Cream
1/4 C. Mayonnaise
1/3 C. Parmesan Cheese (shredded works best)
1/2 tsp. Paprika
1/4 tsp. Salt
1/4 tsp. Garlic Powder
2 C. Crab Meat
1 can (15 oz) Artichoke hearts, cut into bite size pieces

Mix all the ingrediants together and spread into a greased casserole dish, sprinkle with a bit more parmesan Cheese and bake at 350 degrees until bubbly and starting to brown. Serve with crusty french bread or crackers.
