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.

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 usually make this recipe with a can of baby shrimp instead of the crab, and I use quartered english muffins. We call them "Shrimpies". It is very easy to make in advance. You can even freeze the individual pieces. Just pop them under a broiler when you want a quick snack.

I have made a similar recipe that replaces the crab with canned shrimp and spread it on English Muffins. You can quarter them and freeze them in ziploc bags and just pull them out and broil till bubbly.

My girlfriend and her family makes these during the holiday seasons, we call them CRABBIES. They also use english muffins, however they spread just enough to coat the muffin and then puts them under the broiler to get crispy.
