Low-FODMAP Creamy Baked Crab Dip Recipe; Gluten-free

Crab dip is one of those appetizers that everyone loves.  My mom would serve this special occasion appetizer for New Year’s Eve at my house and it would get demolished in short time. I would stalk the table waiting for someone to dig in, since that would be my cue to finally get a taste.

I’m so excited to adapt this crab dip recipe for low-FODMAP eating pleasure. This is an easy and versatile (but decadent!) recipe for creamy low-FODMAP Crab Dip that will be a perfect addition to your holiday table, or any event.
