Quick and Easy Seafood Bites

These quick and easy seafood bites will make short work of common pantry items. This recipe makes a great appetizer for those coming aboard for a cocktail party. Don’t skimp on the hot sauce!


  • 4 Tbsp. butter
  • 5 oz. jar Kraft Old English Cheddar cheese spread, Velveeta or shredded cheddar
  • 1 ½ tsp. mayonnaise
  • ¼ Tsp. garlic salt
  • Dash of hot sauce (optional)
  • 6 oz. can crabmeat (or canned shrimp), drained
  • 6 English muffins split in half


Soften butter and cheese in microwave or on the stovetop. Add mayo, garlic salt, and hot sauce; mix well.

Add crab and fold in gently. Spread muffin halves with crabmeat mixture, and chill for 30 minutes– this makes the crabmeat easier to cut. Cut muffin halves into quarters. Place on cookie sheet and broil until browned, bubbly and crisp. Makes 48 pieces.
