1 small Onion, finely chopped,
5 Tbl. Mayonnaise,
2 (6oz.) cans Crabmeat, drained and flaked,
1/8 tsp. Garlic Powder,
salt and pepper to taste,
1 (1lb) Loaf round, crusty Italian bread (optional) or use crackers.

In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese, onion, mayonnaise, crabmeat, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Spread mixture into a 1 quart baking dish.
Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven.

(optional below)

While the dip is baking, cut a circle in the top of the bread, and scoop out the inside to create a bread bowl. Tear the removed bread into pieces for dipping.
Remove baked crab dip from oven, and stir well. Spoon the mixture into the hollowed out loaf. Place bread bowl and chunks of bread on a medium baking sheet, and bake for an additional 10 minutes. Serve hot.
