I came here in search of this recipe too. I had made it years ago with the english muffins/fast freeze method also. It's great to be able to pull them out of the freezer and go straight to the broiler! Your guests will think you slaved for a long time to make them...and they do melt in your mouth!
I had this recipie for years & lost it. Was excited to find it on your site. I spread the crab mixture on english muffins. I cut them into quarters & fast freeze them. When I get unexpected company, I just put the frozen bites into the broiler.
This is an updated version of a charming and much-loverd recipe my mother made all throughout my childhood. She modified the recipe by adding a few splashes of dry sherry, a couple dashes of hot sauce, and she spread the mixture of English Muffins. As funny as this sounds, this recipe tastes best after freezing over night and then being brioled right out of the freezer... I don't know why, just trust me on this! Kraft Old English Cheese Spread is a MUST for success of this particular recipe.
I made this for a Bridal shower and everyone loved it! I definately recommend it.
We are from Baltimore, Maryland and this is not a great crab recipe. It needs either Old Bay or Wye River seasoning in it and loose the cheese! Also, I would not use crab meat from a metal can, find it in a plastic tub or pick your own.
i did not like the cheese spread in this at all and thought it was too salty
Very rich...I also used toasted english muffins instead of bread. Suggest using english muffins and cuting them into 4 pieces due to the richness.
I made this for a family Christmas Eve party last night! It was gone in 60 seconds! It's easy & fabulous! In Maryland, we get crabmeat in 1 lb. containers so I easily doubled the recipe, with a few changes from this one. I used 12 English muffins, toasted them first, spread the crab/cheese mix on them & quartered the muffins, Had PLENTY for the party & also for home. I used 2 sticks of butter, 2 Tbsp. Kraft Mayo, 2 jars Kraft Old English, and used OLD BAY seasoning instead of the garlic, etc. Anyone from Maryland knows Old Bay seasoning! It's the best! If you want it, you have to get it here!
This recipe is easy and really great. It also works really well with english muffins
This was a great little party pleaser. My guests just loved it.
