  • Summary

    Topped with buttery, toasted breadcrumbs, our hot crab dip has a bechamel base -- smoother than the standard cream cheese. The result will be the hit of the party.

    Ingredients

    • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter
    • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
    • 2 garlic cloves, minced
    • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    • 1 1/2 cups milk
    • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    • 2 teaspoons dry mustard
    • 4 ounces sharp white cheddar cheese, shredded (1 cup)
    • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, plus freshly grated zest of 1 lemon
    • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
    • 10 ounces lump crabmeat, picked over
    • 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
    • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
    • 1 loaf rustic bread (about 1 pound), trimmed of crust and torn into 1-inch pieces (4 to 5 cups)
