Crabby Cheese Cakes

Crabby Cheese Cakes


We made some Crab Rangoon for Christmas Eve appetizers and had some left over filling. This was born as a quick lunch. My husband loved it. I wrote the recipe as if I was starting fresh and not with leftover filling.

Cooking Time

Preparation Time : 10

Cook Time : 5

Total Time : 15


Serves 16

  • 6ounces crab, drained

  • 8ounces cream cheese, at room temp

  • 8 English muffins, split

  • 8ounces cheddar cheese, shredded


  • 01

    Mix the drained crab and cream cheese until well blended.

  • 02

    Fork Split the english muffins and top each with a generous spread of crab mixture.

  • 03

    Place 6-8 inches under the broiler and broil 3-5 minutes. Watch them closely to avoid burning.

  • 04

    When starting to bubble and turn golden brown, remove them and top with cheddar cheese. Let sit a couple mins to allow cheddar to melt.

  • 05

    Tips: You can add the cheddar cheese before broiling if you wish. Also you can pop them in the freezer before broiling for a great make ahead meal. These can be turned into great appetizers themselves by cutting each muffin half into forths before broiling.
