    My mom gave me this recipe. It was a childhood favorite! Crabby, cheesy, tasty! You can freeze the mixture if you want, and then thaw and use as needed.

    WONDERFUL! I make these ahead of time, cut them into quarters, and keep them in a Ziploc bag in the freezer for quick appetizers anytime. Just pop from the freezer to under the broiler - - Viola! 3 minutes later, delicious crab munchies. I use two cans of crabmeat, and only one Tbs. mayo. People will gobble these up.  -  10 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Old English cheese spread (that little glass jar from Kraft) is the way to go with this recipe (and all it's other variations). I always use canned crabmeat, squeezing out the liquid. To freeze: prepare through step 2, lay on cookie sheet in freezer to set, then pop individual pieces in a bag or container for later use.  -  30 Dec 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very good and also easy. I made them ahead, spread on muffins and froze. Just had to defrost, bake and cut.  -  08 Jul 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
