I made a crab spread with cream cheese, sour cream, mayonnaise and imitation crab and would like to know if this can be frozen. I know that you can freeze cream cheese but not sure about something with mayonnaise in it.

I use mayonnaise in my spinach dip and freeze it. Always works well. I microwave it uncovered to use it again; that seems to take back the extra moisture.

I would worry more about the sour cream than the mayo. I have frozen sour cream in the past and when defrosted it's nothing but water.


So it's possible your dip might be a bit watery after defrosting.

How do you freeze cream cheese? I've never had any luck doing it.It always gets mealy. I freeze it in a cheese ball but can you freeze it by itself?
Thank you
