Sherri's notes for this recipe:
I love crab! These are perfect for a party, starter or just a snack. Crab is rather expensive... this is my way of being frugal and still being able to enjoy these lil' delites. You won't find alot of filler in my balls. I want you to enjoy the crab! I made these for my Homeowners Annual meeting 10/22/2011. These babies were a hit and not one left on the platter. They will go fast so you may want to sneak 1 or 2 for yourself before serving. These will be perfect for any holiday party! Cooking With Passion, sw:)
Make it Your Way...

I'm the only one in my family to love crab... so these are perfect for me do for myself... do the cooked ones freeze???? and then put in microwave to heat up???
user Sherri Logan Williams logansw - Oct 23, 2011
they freeze well and you can heat them up in the microwave. for the ones who don't like crab, use cooked ground chicken or turkey. serve them up with some cranberry relish for the holidays or any time...they are yummy. sw☺
