Crab Melts

In the words of my husband and 4 yr old son, "this is the best thing ever!!!!". Super easy and quick to make and 1 lb of crab meat makes almost 10 melts so its a great dinner for guests. Based on my prices here in Carney, the melts only cost $20 for all ingredients. Highly recommend this one.....

Preheat oven to 375

1 lb crab meat (lump, deshelled)
1 1/2 jars Old English Kraft Cheese spread (You can find them in a groc store, near the feta cheese and tub cheese, I know Mars & Giant both carry it. Not too expensive to buy and calories aren't bad either! Microwave for about 20 seconds to soften the cheese before you add it.)
1/4 lb melted butter (about 1/2 stick usually)
2 TBS old bay (more to taste)
1 TBS fresh ground pepper
1 package of English Muffins

Combine all ingredients in a bowl. (Add more old bay or pepper to taste.) Stir very well. Spray the bottom of a baking pan (helps them brown). Slice the english muffins in half. Add the crab topping to each of the english muffin halves. Bake for about 10-12 minutes on middle oven shelf, or until the english muffin is browned and the crab topping is hot. Enjoy!!!!
