Help me update this recipe?

katecm | Nov 13, 2008 09:15 AM

For our Christmas party, I'm updating old classics. So far, my menu is moving smoothly (goat cheese and dill deviled eggs, "lambs in blankets" with lamb sausage, puff pastry and feta/mint sauce). But there's an old appetizer of my mother's that I LOVE and really want to get right. I'm half tempted to make it as is, but really would like to try to avoid the processed cheese.

This weekend, I'll be experimenting, and will definitely try simply replacing the cheese spread with a sharp, high-quality cheddar. I considered goat cheese for its consistency, but I'm already doing goat cheese in the eggs.

Any thoughts from anyone?


5 oz jar Old English Spread
1/4 cup butter
6 oz can crabmeat, drained
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 package English muffins

Mix all ingredients.
Spread on English muffin halves and freeze.

Cut each half into six pieces and broil until bubbly and golden..
