This is a great recipe. However I did substitute Kraft shredded white cheddar cheese instead of the processed cheese. It worked out well. Also after baking I broiled for a minute or two for extra crispness. Everyone loves this recipe! Read More

I was excited to make this for guests but the processed cheese made the whole dish seem kind of tacky as well as it being WAY too salty. I'm only giving it 2 stars because 1 person did enjoy them. Read More

This was heavenly! I went to a party a few weeks ago and the hostess told me she had gotten the recipe from Allrecipes. So I found it here and made it myself. My husband and mother-in-law couldn't get enough! She copied the recipe from me. It is truly a great appetizer - thank you for posting it! Read More

I found these good but just a little too salty on my first batch; the next time I substituted garlic powder for the garlic salt and they were just right! Really easy and convenient to freeze ahead for parties too. Everyone who has tried them loves them. Read More

These tasty treats are simple to make. I toast the muffins before adding the topping and also broil for a few minutes after baking and they come out nice and crispy. Read More

Awesome! I made these with 5oz jar Old English and 1 c. shredded sharp white cheddar. No salt used Lawry's and garlic powder not garlic salt. I put it on individual bread rounds and topped with fresh chives. They were perfect. My 3yo could not stop eating them! Read More

My mother has made these since I was little. She uses Old English Spread from kraft.... I use bacon instead of crabmeat sometimes and comes out just as good. These ALWAYS disappear! Read More

Very good and easy to make. They weren't a big hit at my party though but I have been to parties where they are gobbled up. Must have been my guests! Anyway will make them again since they are delicious. Read More
