Step 1

Preheat the oven to 325° F. Spray a baking dish with non stick cooking spray.

Step 2

In a medium bowl, stir together until well combined - the cream cheese, mayo/sour cream, worcestershire, hot sauce, garlic, and seasonings.

Step 3

Fold in the green onions with a spatula then add the cheeses, the crab meat, and the juice of one lemon over top.

Step 4

Spread mixture into prepared baking dish. Top with Panko breadcrumbs, if desired. Bake for 45 minutes - 1 hour until hot a bubbly.

Add seasonings and flavors you like to this dip. You can also top with cheese at the end of the baking time so it has a crispy top layer.
