I've made this several times, with good results. It doesn't really take very long to assemble and you could easily use real crab. I always used a whole 8 oz package of the imitation crab (shredded style).
It was great!! I used real crab and put in extra crab and cheese.
Even my daughter who doesn't like seafood thought this recipe should probably go in our favorites. :)
This was great but I did add some Old Bay seasoning to it, love the flavors.
I used real crab in mine and it was delicious. Top it off with some hot sauce and it was perfect
