These are perfect for feeding the masses before you are ready to put the main food out. I think this is an old Paula Deen recipe. Keep the recipe handy because you might want a few of these for your July 4th celebration.
1/2 cup (1 stick butter, softened
8 ounces (1 cup) sharp Cheddar cheese spread, any variety
2 teaspoons mayonnaise
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/2 pound fresh crabmeat, picked over twice, no shells please
6 regular-size English muffins, split
1. In a medium bowl, combine the butter, cheese spread, mayonnaise, garlic powder, and seasoned salt. Mix well. Gently fold in the crabmeat.
2. Spread the mixture on the muffin halves and sprinkle with paprika. Cut into quarters. Place on a baking sheet and cover with plastic wrap. Freeze for 20 minutes.
3. While the crabbies are freezing, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
4. Remove the plastic wrap and bake the frozen crabbies for 20 minutes, until the topping is browned and bubbly.
