These seafood-filled croissants will leave you anything but crabby. "We had used the filling as an appetizer, but found it makes a quick-and-easy sandwich, too," relates Kari Moore from West Plains, Missouri.

"This is an excellent recipe. I did add a few more spices and I made it low carb by omitting the croissants. Instead. I stuffed celery sticks with the mixture and served it as an appetizer. I also had no sour cream so used Cream cheese instead.

This is a very fresh tasting recipe no matter how it is served.

"Delicious. I halved the crab, celery, and onion, but used the same amount of cheese, mayo, and yogurt, for 3-4 servings. Had it open-faced on toasted Italian bread."

"I recently made this recipe for a small gathering and everyone was asking for the recipe. It has great flavor and just the right amount of "extras"."
