I made this for a party I recently had and the crab snacks were a hit. Everyone wanted the recipe and I loved them as much as everyone else did.

I found this recipe while looking for something to do with a can of crab meat. I inspired a few changes since I didn't have everything on hand and made it on a smaller scale. I used a small can of white crab meat, mixed it with 1 tablespoon mayo, 2 tablespoons butter, 1 cup of shredded 'cheddar jack' cheese, a little parmesan cheese and mashed it together into a spread. I put a nice thick layer over a bagel half and sprinkled with the paprika. I broiled them in a toaster oven for about ten minutes until they started bubbling. They were delicious!!! Looking at my quantity, you could make 4-6 bagel halves, which is quite a lot of snack for a decent sized family. I'll definately make this again, the crab flavor was NOT lost in the ingredients. Yummy!!! I've also submitted a picture.

Add a clove or two of garlic to the spread for extra flavor!

I make these at every party that I host and they are always a hit! Try adding a little Old Bay (famous native seasoning made in Maryland) to the top of them after they are cooked- I like to use the sodium-free kind because the crab is a little salty by itself. If you are from Maryland, like me, you can't go wrong with these yummy treats!

I make these all the time but without the mayo and I recommend using butter (no margarine) and Old English cheese spread. They are ALWAYS a hit. I sometimes use bacon instead of crabmeat..... Yum

I was just sitting at my computer trying to come up with a quick snack to make with some left over crab meat.I typed it in the search and found this recipe. After trying this, my wife and teenage son think that it's the bomb.... would be great for an appetizer at parties and get togethers

Super easy and delicious. Used whole wheat bagels, real cheese and a little less mayo to make the crab flavor a little more potent. The family loved these!
