~ Double Your Pleasure Seafood Spread ~ Cassies

Cassie *


I've been going through my pantry, preparing for the holiday and came across a can of shrimp. I had a package of imitation crab as well...so, I decided to make something of the two, and a spread came to mind, as I had plenty of bread crumbs too.

This delicious cracker spread was born. Might I add, very well received. It was gone in no time.

Double for a party...delicious!
