Take the submitter's advice and pour cocktail sauce over this before serving-it is out of this world!
I served this crab ball along with three other appetizers at a cocktail party this weekend. Maybe the other appetizers were better, but this dish just didn't "WOW" anyone. It's the second time I have tried this recipe with different people, and the reaction is always just so-so. Sorry, but I just don't think I will try this again for a third time.
I started with this recipe as a basic premise but wound up with something entirely different - used green onion instead of regular onion, added an avocado and used hot sauce instead of worcestershire
Made this for a friend's birthday and she loved it...almost ate the whole thing herself and didn't leave much for the rest of us. I did pour the coctail sauce over it and also used less onion. Thanks for the great treat.
My Husband loved this recipe!!!! I would use a little less onion though! Very, Very easy to make!
After the ball has firned up in the fridge, I unwrap it and roll in shredded chedder cheese,then pour the cocktail sauce over it but also add either crab or shrimp to the sauce!
This cheese ball is great. I used 1 can of crabmeat instead of the imitation crab. I meant to add a little Tony Chachere's Creole seasoning but forgot. So we sprinkled it on as we ate it and it definitely helped bring out the crab flavor. So next time I will add it to the recipe. Will definitely make again.
Made this for a 30th party and it was a hit. I was a little discouraged when making it because I used fat-free cream cheese and the ball was not working too well. In the end though, it turned out excellent and the cocktail sauce was a great addition. Easy and quick. Great recipe.
