Holiday Crabmeat Ball


"Tasty and quick imitation crabmeat appetizer sure to please a crowd. Prepare with enough time to chill! This tastes best with the addition of Tiger Sauce. If you cannot find it (usually in the ketchup/condiment section) and use cocktail sauce instead, remember cocktail sauce contains horseradish and adjust your ingredients accordingly!"

We liked this! I did cut the recipe down and used fresh crab meat that we had from Christmas Eve, which worked great! I formed mine into a log to make it easier to slice and eat. Everyone enjoy...
