Did you know?

Ever wonder what ingredients are in that famous Old Bay Seasoning? We did a little digging and no wonder the taste is so unique! Celery Salt (Salt, Celery seed), spices (including mustard, red pepper, black pepper, bay [laurel] leaves, cloves, allspice [pimento], ginger, mace, cardamom, cinnamon) and paprika.

1 cup mayonnaise
1 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese (divided use)
1 1/2 teaspoons Old Bay seasoning, plus a dash more — divided use. (See below for ingredients in Old Bay seasoning)
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 pound fresh lump crab meat

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine mayonnaise, 3/4 cup cheese, 1 1/2 teaspoons Old Bay seasoning, Worcestershire sauce and mustard. Gently fold mixture into crab meat to combine.

Spoon into a 1-quart greased casserole (cooking spray may be used), top with remaining cheese and sprinkle with a dash of Old Bay seasoning.

Bake for 15 minutes or until mixture begins to bubble around the edges. Serve warm.

Serves 8 to 10
