Delicious little appetizer. This recipe should be doubled for sure these went really fast. They were very easy to make, my nine year old made them with me. We loved the bacon wrapped around the crab, gave it a wonderful taste. Thanks!

Maybe it was the type of canned crab that I used...maybe it was the white wine...these just weren't as good as some crab appetizers that I have had. They were a little tart (from the lemon juice? from the wine?). While they do get 5 stars for ease, and 5 stars because the ingedients are readily available, the flavor wasn't outstanding for me. Thanks, but I think I will try another recipe next time.

Good appetizer. It wasn't as spicy as I like, therefore, I added a couple of drops of hot sauce. They had a good consistency that the balls held together well (I've made some crabcakes that didn't do as well). Thanks, Chia.
