Reviews for Crab Melts
"We were given a bunch of steamed crabs so I went searching for a recipe. This was a great find! I had a lot of crab meat so I just increased the other ingredients; it turned out very well. I will definitely make this again. Just watch out for the broiler; it doesn't take long."
"Very good and easy."
"These were excellent...I added a little bit of garlic powder, kosher salt and pepper to the mix...Yum!!!"
"This is a favorite dinner entree of ours being crab lovers. I've even doubled the amount of crab desiring more filling. Just watch that it doesn't "burn" when placing in the broiler."
