I'm eating these as I very good. I had to use hamburger buns because that's all I had, also my local grocery was out of imitation crab so I bought imitation crab/shrimp and it's so delicious!!! I think I'll try this on french bread the next time as I love french bread, Thanks for sharing a keeper.

Terrific broiled sandwiches. I added bell pepper, celery and lemon juice as suggested by Seafood Salad #164809.
