I was about to put this recipe on zaar, too! (Mine doesn't have dill in it--only difference!) It is a favorite at our house, I always have some in the freezer. At a party on Sat. I got halfway through the recipe and found I had no crab so I substituted a can of small shrimps--still got raves! Try this--you'll be hooked!

I made a batch of these to keep on hand during the holidays. Everyone has enjoyed them and wants the recipe! I think I will cut back on the butter next time. Thanks for sharing!

I loved the triangles. They were easy and quick to make. The best part was I made a whole batch and was able to put them in the freezer for later. And they still tasted great!

Made this to bring to a party. They were a big hit! The only thing I will do differently next time is use 1/4 tsp. season salt as they were a bit salty. Thanks for a quick easy go to party recipe!

My mom made these while we were out visiting last weekend and they are AWESOME! She used Imperial Sharp Cheddar Cheese Spread instead of the Old English and I just couldn't get enough!!

I made this but could not get the cheese specified, but being that I wanted it to be more about the crab anyway, I used 5 oz of grated mozzarella. That part worked out fine. But the raw garlic was overpowering and I did not taste the crab at all. I will make this again but will just use a little garlic powder. I did freeze these and they work fine except the raw garlic is still too much for me.

The only thing I did different was to use whole wheat muffins. These turned out great, and will be adding to the freezer reserve. Thanks for the great appetizer.

As Stewie, I don't use dill. But have made these for years and they are yummy! We call them Broiled Crab Meltaways. For an appetizer people should try these!

Fantastic and SO easy to throw together! I made a batch of these for Jim and I to nosh on while watching the Chicago Bears annihilate the Philly Eagles (sorry Eagles fans). I froze half the batch and we'll enjoy those next football Sunday. I made exactly as written but used Earth Balance Buttery Sticks instead of butter (or margarine) and Veganaise instead of Mayo. Those substitutions work in just about any recipe using butter, margarine or mayo and the taste is still there. We're on a low-fat, low-cholesterol diet and I'm finding that I can convert almost any recipe. I'll stop now and just say thanks Leilani for the recipe, we loved it :) (Leilani is my niece's middle name)
