1 small can of crabmeat (12 oz)
1 tsp. lemon juice
5 tbsp. mayonnaise
1 tsp. prepared horseradish
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
3 hamburger buns or fresh english muffins halved
3 strips good bacon
In a small bowl shred and pick over the crab meat looking for cartiledge. Add lemon juice, mayonnaise and horseradish. Stir gently to mix ingredients being careful not to break up the crab meat too much.
Spread the six halves of the buns or muffins with the softened cream cheese and place them on a broiler safe pan. Divide the crab mixture into 6 parts and spread it over the cream cheese being careful to cover all the cream cheese. Slice the bacon into one inch pieces and place one or two on top/center of each bun. Broil about 4 inches from the broiler flame until the bacon sizzles and there are light brown touches all over the delicious crabmeat.
Comments: These are also nice cut into fourths and served as an hor d’ouvres. Then you would want to place four small pieces of the good bacon on each quadrant. These are also good with leftover shredded lobster meat. They are nice in the summer with a bowl of gazpacho!
