Fantastic appy that can be done in advance, is visually appealing and takes a great spin on an old favorite. This goes fantastic with a chilled glass of rose champagne. Thanks for the treat!

Hi there Di, I made these yesterday to bring to a party, and they turned out great. What appealed to me about this recipe is the fact that there is a lot less mayo called for than most recipes. Also, the idea of the crabmeat seemed different. I did not use the caviar since I don't like it, and I did add 2 tsp dijon mustard & some fresh parsley to the mix. By the way, I made 30 of these, and they were consumed within a few minutes after putting them on the buffet table. Thanks for sharing! --Marla
