Crabbies-An Awesome Appetizer

I thought I would be a responsible blogger and put a relevant post up for the Super Bowl Party you should be throwing. Being responsible is soooo overrated.
I created these delectable little crab appetizers for that Philly Cream Cheese contest I entered last year. And we all know the outcome of that. Blah-blah-blah-yadda-yadda-yadda. No hard feelings here.

4 ounce(s) of Butter, softened
4 ounce(s) of Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened
4 ounce(s) of Lump Crab Meat
1 tsp. of Cajun Seasoning
1 1/2 tsp. of Parsely
1 Garlic Clove, minced
1 Lemon, sliced in half
1 tsp. of Paprika
1 tsp. of Kosher Salt
3 English Muffins, split
6 Chive pieces, cut into 1/2″ pieces
Preheat your oven to 350.
In a medium bowl with a hand mixer, cream together butter and cream cheese until smooth.
Run your fingers thru the crab meat to make sure no shells remain and pour into bowl.
Add cajun seasoning.
Add parsley.
Add garlic.
Add the juice from 1/2 of the lemon.
Stir together with a spoon.
Place the English Muffins on a baking sheet(there will be 6 slices) and top with equal amounts of the crab mixture.
Spread evenly.
Sprinkle each piece with a small amount of paprika.
Quarter each English Muffin. You will have a total of 24 pieces.
Sprinkle each piece with a small amount of Kosher salt.
Bake on the middle rack for 30 minutes.
Remove from the oven and squeeze the remaining 1/2 lemon over the crabbies.
Top with two pieces of chives in a “x” pattern.

    Love it! I'm saving this one. I'm actually finally starting to get serious with my Super Bowl menu planning. For me, it's all about the snacks and commercials anyway. 🙂

    These sound delicious. They are also relatively easy to do. That's a winning combination in my book. I hope you have a great day. Blessings…Mary

    Your videos are always so entertaining, FN missed their chance. I enjoy how you don't take yourself too seriously, it comes off like we're just hanging out in your kitchen while you cook.

    Oh PERFECT!! As a Bengals fan, football is dead to me this year (only way to cope). But I might console myself with these yummy-looking little guys!

    No better combo than crab and cream cheese! Love that you don't have to take out a loan to buy the crab since you don't need that much.

    Leslie, I am SO glad to see you got rid of the black background. I have always liked your blog but have to admit, I could not read it because of the color. Just too hard on my eyes. It looks terrific!

    You are too cute! So glad I found you over on the Philly site. You are the funniest!
    These look fabulous Leslie. I'm going to add them to my Super Bowl round-up list.

    These would be very dangerous for me… they look very addictive.

    Yea! A video! They always make me smile.

    You were destined to be a foodie! Not odd, a foodie. My kids were good about odd foods too…except one of them didn't like mushrooms. My granddaughter will try anything, thank God.

    I like your crabbies…. easy too. Yummy for Super Bowl snacks.
