Great recipe! I tried this last Christmas and forgot to write a review, but I have made it a few times since then, always a hit!!! I used a can of "real" crabmeat instead of the imitation package, and also added really finely chopped red pepper to add colour for Christmas:) tastes very good with the red pepper added! thanks for sharing!!!
