    IngridH's Note:

    My mom made these when I was a little girl, and I've always loved them. Mom always served them for dinner, but they would also be great for a brunch, or lunch. Now that I'm an adult, this was one of the recipes that was important for me to get and keep for the generations to come. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Feel free to add hot sauce or red pepper if you prefer a kick in your sandwich.

      Thank you to Ingrid and her Mom for this recipe. I made these the other day and they came out great! I only had four english muffins on hand so we all just had some extra crab mixture on our muffins. I grated about 3 oz of extra cheddar for on top and that really made these taste outstanding. I will definately make these again.

      This was a great dinner. I did make a few changes some by choice some not. I used 12 oz of crab and green onions instead of regular. I didn't have sharp cheddar so I had to add quite a bit more cheese to make the sauce taste cheesy. I used garlic salt and cracked pepper. Anyway you slice it, this was very good.
