You can freeze them, pop them out a few at a time, and save the rest for later. I have yet to meet anyone who doesn't go crazy over them. And the ingredients are so cheap and available:
1 dozen English muffins, split
2 cans lump crab meat (the good stuff) or 1 can lump, 1 can claw
2 tbsp mayo
1/2 tsp seasoning salt (I used the Creole seasoning to the right)
1 jar Old English cheddar cheese (below)
1 clove garlic, crushed
1/2 stick butter, softened
Optional: cayenne, salt and pepper, your favorite spice
This is so easy. I love it. Mix the butter, mayo, cheddar, garlic, and seasoning salt.
Fold in the crab.
OR you could leave them whole, and you have a side dish, or a lovely base for Eggs Benedict. Just top it with a poached egg.
Otherwise, it's best to freeze these babies until you're ready to use them.
When you are ready — and I'm ready now — toast them in a 400 degree oven for ten minutes or until they're hot and bubbly.
