Easy Cheesy Appetizer from Gooseberry Patch

This super easy appetizer caught my attention the first time I picked up Simple Shortcut Recipes: More than 225 Simplified Recipes Plus Time-Saving Tips for Today's Busy Cook! (Everyday Cookbook Collection) from Gooseberry Patch.  Growing up there was a restaurant that had the most amazing appetizer that had the same name as this recipe so I knew I had to try it. 


Although these crabbies are nothing like the crabbies I grew up enjoying, they were quite delicious and easy to make.


7 1/2 oz. can crab meat, drained
5 oz. jar sharp pasteurized process cheese spread
2 T. mayonnaise
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 t. garlic powder
hot pepper sauce to taste
6 English muffins, split
Garnish:  fresh parsley, chopped




In a bowl, combine all ingredients except muffins and parsley. (I decided to mix everything, but the crab meat first and then add the crab meat.)





Spread mixture evenly over muffin halves.  Cut each round into quarters and arrange on an ungreased baking sheet. (I covered my baking sheet with aluminum foil. Additionally, since we ate these as a meal, I did not cut them into quarters.)

Bake at 425 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes, until topping is heated through and golden.

Sprinkle with parsley.


Serve warm. 

Enjoy and don't forget there are just a few days remaining to enter for your chance to win a copy of Gooseberry Patch's Simple Shortcut Recipes thanks to Gooseberry Patch!
