I cant believe that no one has rated this!!!! These are GREAT. I did add a few cloves of fresh garlic in w/ the red onion when I processed it. Also used Chicken of the Sea lump crab meat and added 2 cans. Didnt have any party pump, so did it on party rye. Made a few to taste, as I am taking them to a party...so I have 2 cookie sheets made up, so all I have to do is broil them when I get there!!!!! I wish I would have made the mixture this morning as I think the flavors would have mixed together a little more, but all in all these are really easy and good!!! Thanks Janet and Linda!!!

This is a great recipe! Janet, if you are able, I think that you should rewrite your recipe description. It doesn't include the part where you mention the crab until you actually open it up...so it sorta reads like...cheesy mayonnaise toast. As great a recipe as it is I think you need to make it stand out...this 'keeper' needs to be!!

Terrific recipe. I have made twice now and these are gobbled up by my guests. The first time, I followed recipe exactly. The second time I made these, I reduced the amount of mayo, increased the cheese just a tad, and added two cans of crabmeat and a dash of red pepper. The second batch was much better and not so mayonaisse-y. You are right....the lemon pepper is the key. Thanks so much...great recipe.

We tried these, did just as the recipe states and I didn't like them at all. My husband thought they were ok and everyone else at the party tried one and I think out of kindness just didn't eat anymore but they didn't comment either. They weren't horrible just not very good either.
