Easy Buffalo Peekytoe Crab Dip

Easy Buffalo Peekytoe Crab Dip

Time: 30 minutes

Take your menu up a notch with BUFFALO PEEKYTOE CRAB DIP. It will be a crowd favorite at poker night, while watching the big game, or at a family dinner.

Sourced locally from Mount Desert Island, ME, this premium crab meat is a Browne Trading staple. Our owner, Rod Browne Mitchell, coined the term back in the ’90s when he discovered that the sweet flavor and incomparable whole body portions had not properly reached kitchens. After seeing the crab’s picked-like toe on the edges of its legs, he began calling it “Peekytoe,” which can now be found on menus across the U.S.
