MIAMM: Crabbies

I don’t know about you but we love munching on snacks during the Eagles games. Maybe it’s a fall football thing but there’s something right about having a snack while sitting on the couch (most likely with a beer). The other week, the grocery store had an amazing deal on English muffins which got me thinking about the little crab appetizers made with English muffins.

Cheese! Crab! Carbs!

Essentially, the snacks are crack like (if you enjoy seafood). So into the freezer went the muffins and on to Internet I went for the recipe. Sure, I could have called home up for the recipe but I got lazy (calling would have involved writing down the recipe and I’d probably lose it.) Along the way, I learned this delectable snack had a name– Crabbies and Silver Linings Playbook referenced them during one of the Eagles game scenes.

Umm fate, if you ask me. We needed to munch on the Crabbies during the game especially after all the support Bradley Cooper has given the Eagles.

3. Have a few sips of beer, it took a bit of effort to blend everything.
4. Spread the mixture on split English muffins. I went light on the first few trying to gauge the amount of crab mixture per English muffin and then added more after all muffins had some.

5. Place on cookie sheet.

7. After removing them from the freezer, cut the muffins in quarters.
