Whoah. These crab meltaways look so delicious. I love crab and the taste of this seafood. I wonder how this will taste when mixed with cheese, butter, mayonnaise and other condiments and spices. I can't wait to do this.

YUM these are so good!!

I love, love, love just about anything with crab in it and I've had it before with cream cheese but never a sharp cheese spread, I'm thinking being mixed with the butter this will no doubt be a super indulgent treat for any occasion. Also, toasting the English muffins beforehand will give it another element of texture and I'm pretty sure it'll certainly enhance this deliciousness that's already present!

This was so tasty, I loved the light flavor and the mix of textures!
