8oz 1/3-less fat cream cheese (Neufchatel), softened
1/2 cup light mayonnaise
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1/4 tsp. hot pepper sauce
3 scallions, finely chopped
12 oz lump crabmeat (2 cups)
1/2 tsp. each salt and pepper
2 to 3 Tbsp. freshly grated Parmesan Cheese
Dippers ~ Sliced french bread or bagel chips

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Have ready a 3 cup greased baking dish. I use PAM spray.

With a wooden spoon, mix cream cheese and mayo in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Stir in lemon juice, pepper sauce, and scallions. Fold in crabmeat, salt and pepper.

Spread into baking dish. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake 15-20 minutes until bubbly and top is golden. Serve hot or warm.
