Make crab and cream cheese dip by blending 1/2 pound of crab meat, 3 ounces of cream cheese and 2/3 bunch of green onions in a food processor. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and add 1 teaspoon hot sauce, 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce, 1 teaspoon prepared horseradish and 2 tablespoons Creole mustard. Once it's thoroughly pureed, slowly add 5 more ounces of cream cheese. Fold in another 1/2 pound of crab meat and the remaining 1/3 bunch of thinly sliced green onions, and serve with crackers or toast.

Another recipe calls for 1 8-ounce package of softened cream cheese, 1/4 cup mayonnaise, 3 tablespoons milk, 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Season the mixture with cayenne pepper or hot sauce to taste. Blend everything together, then fold in 1 can of drained crab meat. Chill before serving with vegetables or chips.

To make crab wontons, combine 2 ounces of softened cream cheese with 2 tablespoons of canned crab meat and 2 teaspoons chopped green onion. Spoon the mixture into 6 wonton wrappers, seal closed by moistening the edges with water, and fry in oil.
