DH loved this! So did I, of course, but he doesn't eat cheese and he still enjoyed it. I used Old Bay Seasoning, homemade gluten free french bread baguette and had to use fake crab, which is definitely not my first choice, but there wasn't enough fresh crab to make it worth cracking and have to buy fake stuff anyway. I'll be making this again when I've got fresh crab available because this recipe reminds me of one my mom used to make when I was a kid. She used English muffins as the base and sometimes crab, shrimp or tuna in the topping. Great recipe, Rita! Thanks for bringing back some fond memories. :)

Not bad. Best if eaten fresh out of the oven. I don't think the egg is even necessary. I prefer a recipe with specific times but everything here you need to watch closely as not to burn. I even made some on sliced italian bread and it came out nicely.

This was really good! I enjoyed a different way to have crab, but my husband thought it was too fishy for him. He sure did eat his share though! I may split this in 1/2 and make crab for me and chicken for him and use fresh baby spinach. I always have it on hand and this would be a great way to use up the last bit when it starts to wilt. And I have to say that scrumptious photo is what got me to this recipe! Thanks Rita!

OMG, YUM! I think I could have this almost everyday and not get tired of it. I did butter the top of half my bread slices (didn't broil them as I like my bread soft), and I think I like the buttered ones a litte bit more. So good over the lips, so bad for the hips, but they're worth it! Thanks Rita!

These were soooooooo good!! I dont know if it was the crispy of the garlic bread with the smoothness of the crabmeat mixture, but it was definitely high restauraunt quality!! Thanks for a great recipe that I can impress others with.

Yum! This was sooooo good and pretty easy too! I had a 1/2 lb loaf of frozen garlic bread that was sliced lengthwise, so I just baked it as normal and then spread the crab mixture on top and broiled. I made this for ZWT 3 and it made a great dinner for DH and I served with some roasted green beans. Thanks for posting Rita!

This recipe was wonderful! I used a foccacia bread pizza crust and changed this a bit. I used an alfredo sauce mix for the sauce. Then I added chopped lump crap meat, spinach, chopped artichokes, minced garlic gloves, old bay seasoning, salt, and pepper. I topped all that with mozzarella and baked at 350 for about 25 minutes. Yummy! My boyfriend swore he wouldn't like it, but ended up eating half the pizza! I still have leftovers for another pizza in my fridge....Will be making again soon!

Hi Rita, these were superb! We used the Old Bay Seasoning and it was just great! How can this be bad, what with lump-crabmeat, spinach(yummy)and cheese? I made a meal out of it - it was wonderful! Can't stop raving about them. Thank you for posting, Diane :=)
