Cheesy Crab Appetizers

Cheesy Crab Appetizers

"Cheese, crab, herbs and lemon, plus a pizza crust shaped into muffin cups, these cheesy crab appetizers are super fun and quick to make. It’s so good!! I cut a pizza crust into 12 squares and lined 12 muffin cups with them. You can use mini muffin cups to make the crab appetizers even cuter. Add your cheesy crab filling into the crust nest, top with more cheese, then let your oven do the rest."

NotesThis recipe can also be made in 24 mini muffin cups.

My boyfriend's dad owns a restaurant in Maryland and my favorite appetizer from there is their delicious, gooey, cheesy crab dip! The dip comes full of Maryland crab meat and has an herbed, toasted bread to dip in. I love this recipe because it reminds me of the dip but all in one bite! I am very excited to try this recipe and compare it to the dip!
