My grandmother from Memphis passed her recipe onto my mother, and now onto me and I LOVE making/eating these whenever I can! My niece who doesn't like crab meat, actually loves them. I make them for parties, holidays and get togethers, or just for myself. It's so very easy! Enjoy!

How to Make Mimi's Memphis Crabbies


  1. Split each muffin so that they are open-faced and spread out on a non-greased cookie sheet.
  2. Melt butter in medium bowl and add mayonaise, garlic salt, cheese spread and crab meat.
  3. Spead mixture over each open-faced muffin.
  4. Put muffins in freezer for 5 mintues to solidify the spread. But not rock solid!
  5. Remove muffins from freezer and cut each muffin into mini pizza slices.
  6. Turn oven on BROIL and put muffins in when oven is ready. Carefully watch the muffins as this only takes a few minutes. (No longer than 5 minutes.) Look for the spread to melt or bubble, then they are done.
  7. OPTION: If you don't want to broil all at once, after chilling and slicing the muffins, put them back into the freezer to bake at a later time. It makes for a great after work/school snack!
