These are a tasty treat. I'm always asked for the recipe when I serve these!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

An easy and delicious crab appetizer. Cream cheese makes the filling creamy and gives it a little tang. Crabmeat gives the rolls a fresh seafood taste. Mixed together with green onions and celery, it makes the best filling. We love that these are prepared ahead of time. Saves you time the day of a party - simply slice them and put them on a platter before guests arrive.
