This is a good way to use up some more of the crabs we catch. I used the meat from 3 blue swimmers for it. I wouldn't mind the mix piled into avocado halves and baked for a 70s style appetiser.

Used canned crab and a mild cheddar and they were quite good but I'll be trying these again with fresh crab next time around. Made for January Recipe Swap.
