Step 1

Preheat broiler to high heat and warm a cast-iron medium serving dish over a low flame while you prepare the crab.

Combine the bread and milk in a small bowl and set aside for 5 minutes. Purée the milk and bread in a blender until very smooth, then force the mixture through a fine mesh strainer.

In a 3-quart saucepan, warm the olive oil over medium-low heat. Add the oregano and sauté gently, just until it becomes fragrant and begins to sizzle, about 2 minutes. Add the onion and continue sautéing for 5 to 6 minutes, until the onion is translucent and soft. Add the crab and the bread/milk mixture to the pan and stir gently until thoroughly combined and warm. Remove the pan from the stove and fold in the heavy cream. Season to taste with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Transfer the crab mixture to your preheated serving dish. Evenly cover the dip with grated Parmesan cheese and broil for 5 minutes. Allow the crab dip to rest for 5 minutes before serving with toasted bread.
