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 Min

Cook Time : 5 Min

Total Time : 15 Min


Serves : 16
  • 6 vanilla

  • 8 cream cheese

  • 8 english muffins

  • 8 cheddar cheese


  • Mix the drained crab and cream cheese until well blended.
  • Fork Split the english muffins and top each with a generous spread of crab mixture.
  • Place 6-8 inches under the broiler and broil 3-5 minutes. Watch them closely to avoid burning.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Enjoy!
