I just realized I didn't post Thursday, and that this is late. Oops!
Here is a tried and true holiday appetizer recipe. Despite the funny implications of their name, Crabbies are delicious with a capital D. It makes 48 appetizers.
1 jar Old English cheese (found near the cheeses, but not usually in the cooler)
1 stick margarine or butter (mom uses marg, I tried butter; both work well)
1 small can crabmeat, drained
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 package English Muffins
1. Melt cheese and margarine/butter in a saucepan on low heat, stirring occasionally. Add crabmeat and garlic sauce once the cheese and butter are melted together. Remove from heat.
2. While the cheese and margarine are melting, cut each muffin in half and lay out nook-and-cranny side up on a cookie sheet. Then, take your knife and score the muffins into quarters. This makes separating the pieces easier after you freeze the Crabbies.
3. Spread the cheese-crabmeat mixture onto the muffins. Cover them with wax paper and freeze. After they're frozen, separate the quarters and put them in a freezer bag for storage.
4. To serve, brown the Crabbies under a broiler for around 5 minutes. I typically use a toaster oven because it takes a lot less time to warm up than a standard oven. And you might as well sit near the thing, because once you put the Crabbies out they go quickly. Enjoy!
