I made these for dinner last evening, using crab meat picked from Saturday’s leftover crabs. The recipe is Scott’s grandmother’s, and it’s a real crowd pleaser.


12 ounces crab meat (I used lump, backfin, and claw from about eight crabs, but you can use canned – drained well)

5 tablespoons butter

1 tablespoon Miracle Whip

1 tablespoon Old Bay seasoning

1 jar Kraft Old English cheese spread

1 package of 6 English muffins, split (I lowered the calories a little by using Thomas’ new Triple Health muffins – 100 calories per whole muffin, as compared to 120 calories in the “original recipe”)


Melt butter in a medium saucepan over very low heat. Stir in Miracle Whip and Old English Cheese until well blended. Remove from heat and gently fold in crab. Place a small scoop of mixture on each of twelve muffin halves. Spread lightly with a spatula. Season with Old Bay seasoning. Place on a cookie sheet and bake in a 400 degree oven for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown on top.

Cool slightly (they will be super HOT) and enjoy!
