Fun Food For Festive Feasting - Recipe 3

So, have I tickled and tantalized your taste buds with the last two recipe posts, or are you ready for more? I say MORE! MORE! MORE!
Now, I can't profess the same level of love for spreads that I have for cheese balls, but they do come in a close second! Why? Well, like their round counterparts, they're easy to prepare, you can make them using a variety of ingredients and the ability to prepare them in advance is always a plus! This warm crab spread is sure to be a real crowd pleaser!

Cheesy Hot Crab and Red Pepper Spread


1-1/2 cups  KRAFT 2% Milk Shredded Mozzarella Cheese, divided
1 pkg.  (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese, softened
1tsp.  garlic powder
1tsp.  Italian seasoning
1 red pepper, chopped
1small  onion, finely chopped
1can  (6 oz.) crabmeat, drained

HEAT oven to 375°F.
RESERVE 1/2 cup mozzarella; refrigerate until ready to use. Mix all remaining ingredients except crackers until well blended.
SPREAD into 9-inch pie plate.
BAKE 20 min. or until crab mixture is heated through and top is lightly browned. Top with reserved mozzarella. Serve with crackers.

I hope you're enjoying these recipes. Thanks for stopping by!
Hugs, Leena
