Very good. For those who don't want to spend the money on fresh crab, you can use canned crabmeat (drain and flake it really well). I also cut down on some of the onion. I love blue cheese, crab, tomato, and croissants, so this is a great combination.
Super tasty! I use this with fresh dungeness crab and a little less of the rest of the ingredients. Reducing the other ingredients helps highlight the taste of fresh crab. Also, try baking on low heat for a couple of minutes for an excellent crab melt.
Pretty good. However, I felt 2/3 cup of blue cheese dressing was way TOO MUCH for 16 ounces (which I used instead of 12 ounces)! I also used Swiss cheese instead of Asiago. I would probably make this again and not add as much dressing or just substitute for another like Ranch.
I live in sunny South Florida where Blue crab is fresh...this recipe is tasty and quick, I don't have to be tied up in the kitchen while everyone elese enjoys the afternoon! :)
Delicious though I had to use Dungeness because i could not find blue crabs. Thanks for sharing! Reviewed First Faceless frenzy Western Allstars 2012
