Reviews for Mushroom Crab Melts
"Really good and different. Ii'e also made them without the bacon when my vegetarian son-in-law was in town."
"Very good. The kids loved it."
"I wanted to love this, but it was just ok."
"I was actually looking for a recipe for crab topping for burgers when I found this. I made up the crab mixture and put it on fresh, homemade burgers instead of the English muffins. They were great!"
"I've never really liked crab but my husband loves it, and I'm not even a big fan of mushrooms, but this is fantastic!! Even my daughter ate it and didn't realize how many veggies she ate because the crab and cheese kind of meld everything together into deliciousness!"
