  1. I'm honored to be the first review for this gem of an appetizer recipe. It's delicious and so very easy to make. You can (and I did) use the less expensive canned crab from the grocery aisle for this recipe with great results. Everyone loved it! Thank you!
     
  2. My mom used to make this for NYE every year, it was so good and I was pleasantly surprised at how simple it was to make! Super delicious a fan favorite and I will be making this again for Super Bowl Sunday!!

  1. I ALWAYS PUT ONE CAN OF CRAB MEAT IN THE BALL AND ANOTHER ON THE OUT SIDE ON TOP OF THE COCKTAIL SAUCE . PLACE IT ON LETTUCE THEN GARNISH WITH LEMON WEDGES AROUND THE OUTSIDE EDGE.
