Can I Make Keto Crab Dip Ahead?
This cream cheese keto crab dip is a great option for a make-ahead dip. You can actually store the crab dip either before you bake it or afterwards.
If storing it beforehand, simply leave the dip in the bowl that you combine the ingredients in and cover it with plastic wrap before putting it in the fridge.
On the other hand, if you’re planning on baking the dip, then you’ll first need to allow it to cool completely. You should then transfer the dip into an airtight container to again be stored in the fridge.
Whatever option you choose, your crab dip will keep for up to 3-5 days when properly stored in the fridge.
