Leftover Crab Dip - Ideas Needed for Entree

I need to use the leftover crab dip I made for the holiday. It's simply back fin crab, cream cheese, mayo, worchestershire sauce, a little sour cream, cheddar cheese and a little cajun seasoning. Any ideas of what I can do with it (add to it) to turn it into an entree tonight, i.,e., a casserole or with pasta maybe?

  1. I was thinking a tetrazzin with sauteed mushrooms, peas and melted dip into a bechamel. Good luck

      Thanks, that's an idea. I do have all the ingredients on hand.

    2. Sounds like it would be great no matter how you serve it. I can imagine it with nice egg pasta like linguine or fettuccine. Chopped fresh tomatoes and/or wilted spinach would cut the richness a bit.

      It would also be good stuffed into portabellas, maybe baked with buttery bread crumbs on top.
