Crab Bites

No matter if it’s Sunday, Monday, Thursday, or Saturday, you’re probably watching football. Let’s face it, the game is always more fun when you invite people over to watch it with you. This delicious appetizer will fill you up and have your guests inviting themselves over for the next game. My hubby LOVES these and it has become a staple snack in our house.  This was given to me from a former co-worker. While I didn’t get this from Pinterest, I hope it will make it now! These are too good not to share.

The best part? You can freeze batches ahead of time and just pop them into the oven as needed!

Crab Bites


6 English Muffins

5oz Old English Cheese

8oz Crab meat, imitation or real, we prefer the real deal!

1 stick of butter

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp garlic powder




1. Combine cheese spread, butter, salt, and garlic powder in a bowl. I like to soften the cheese spread and butter first so its easier to mix and dish out. Then mix in your crab meat.



2. Separate your english muffins into halves, then cut each half into 1/4’s. Then set them out on baking sheets.



3. Scoop out your crab mixture onto each piece if the muffins. About a tablespoon size per piece. You can always go back over with the remainder.

4. Cover with aluminum foil and freeze for at least 1 hour, or even for up to several weeks. When you’re ready, just pop them in the broiler for about 10 min. Just remember to watch them to make sure they don’t burn. Enjoy!

Sorry for the delay…

I know I’ve been MIA in my blogging. We recently said goodbye to our furry family member, Dakota aka Kodie Pie. A loss like that really takes it out of you and even my love for writing couldn’t put the wind back in my sails.

Dakota was the most amazing dog ever. My hubby and I were certain she was going to be the first dog to speak english. She would stare at you so intently, looking almost frustrated that she couldn’t communicate verbally. She was quick to learn her “tricks”, although when excited for a treat she would combine them all into one. So sit, lie down, and roll over, would become sitliedownrollover. It was so funny. She was a better dog  off leash than on which I believe is just another extension of her human like qualities.

Dakota supported me through some of the toughest moments of my life. I don’t know how dogs can sense sadness, but several of my lowest points she would simply sit by my side or curl up (all 80lbs!) with me on the couch. She made herself my shadow until she knew I was better. She will be greatly missed and will forever hold a huge piece of our hearts.

In honor of Dakota, and to the benefit of our remaining dog Little Dog, I am going to do a post for homemade dog treats. They are made of pumpkin which is supposed to be great for digestion. So stay tuned for that in the next couple weeks.



Our sweet Dakota
