This is one of my favorite appetizers-sooo good and EASY. Great to make ahead and freeze. I prefer using unsalted butter and garlic powder though as this recipe can be salty. Read More

I didn't like this at all. Way too salty and too greasy. I served for guests at a dinner party and they were all very unimpressed. I used on party rye. Maybe better on thicker pieces of bread that can soak up all the grease. Won't even try to modify this one. Read More

I have made this recipe many times over the past 25 years, with 1 major change. If you add the jar of Kraft Old English Cheese Spread it makes a super delicious appetizer that can be prepared and frozen way in advance and kept on hand for unexpected guests.With this change, I'd give it 5 stars.

I didn't like this recipe at all.. way too salty even though I only put in 1/2 the amount of seasoning salt. It sounded good but just didn't live up to the expectations! Read More

I have not tried this yet but i have a suggestion to make. I have a recipe that calls for all the ingredients listed plus one small jar of kraft old english cheese spread! Add that and you will see a huge difference! My mom made this at holidays and now i am requested to bring it all the time! Read More

This was the hit of my tea party! I did change the recipe a bit based on what other reviewers said: I used garlic powder instead of garlic salt and I used half the seasoning salt. I will definitely make this again! Read More

I tried this with tuna since I don't like crab. I did note the butter/mayo mixture was quite salty (and I'm a salt-a-holic) but once the tuna was added put on muffins and toasted I didn't really notice. Perhaps the stronger flavor of the tuna covered it up so I'd suggest plain garlic powder. But all in all they were pretty decent though I thought only enough mixture for 4 (whole) muffins. And easy to make. Read More

I love this recipe! I added about 2 tablespoons of cream cheese to the mixture to make it taste more like the classic "crab rangoon" then topped the english muffins with shredded mozarella cheese before baking. Everyone loved and asked for the recipe! (Even the picky eaters that don't care for regular crab rangoons enjoyed this appetizer) Read More

This was REALLY good, with a couple of minor tweaks. I used the ingredients listed, but change the amounts. I had about 8-10 ounces of meat from crab legs, so I used that. Only used about a tablespoon of butter (3/8 cup seemed like WAY too much!), 2 tablespoons of "Mayo w/ Olive Oil", 1/4 tsp. garlic powder (NOT garlic salt), and 1/4 tsp. seasoned salt. This was just enough for a mixture that was mostly crab, which is what I wanted. I used multigrain sandwich rounds instead of muffins, sprinkled the top with just a pinch of plain bread crumbs, and broiled as indicated (about 7 minutes). They were fantastic! Definite make again. Next time I'm going to use some sliced French bread sticks for the toast. Read More
