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!

prep time 15 Min
cook time 5 Min

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.

    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!
