Makes 48 crabby bites
These cheesy bites of crab can melt any heart especially for fans of "Silver Lining Playbook." Adapted from Joy Bugaloo's "Lindsey's Luscious" blog.
6 English muffins, split
One 5- or 6-ounce jar cheese spread, room temperature
2 tablespoons butter, softened
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
Few shakes hot sauce, to taste
1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 (or 2) tablespoon(s) freshly chopped parsley
One 6- or 7-ounce can crabmeat, drained, flaked
Heat oven to 350 degrees Arrange split muffins, cut side up, on a baking pan lined with foil. Toast for a few minutes in the oven while it's preheating, until the muffins start to turn golden around the edges.
In a medium bowl, mash the cheese spread with butter, mayonnaise, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, Old Bay seasoning, pepper and parsley. Stir in the crabmeat. Spread evenly over the split, toasted muffins.
Return to the oven for 10 minutes, or until hot and bubbly. Cut into quarters and serve warm, garnished with green onions and/or diced tomatoes, if desired.
