Crab Puffers!!

Have you ever craved a melt in your mouth cheesy crabby delight?? Well, now is your perfect opportunity! Coming from the Chesapeake, I am accustomed a wonderful treasure called Old Bay. It is a necessary ingredient in my household and it the special secret to this little recipe. I'm talking about crab puffs! My mom had this recipe and whenever we have guests, crab puffs are always expected! I made them this week for a party on my hall, so I hope you don't mind if I share some of the other goodies we had as well!!! 

First, I'll share the recipe for the crab puffs! 

1 lb. imitation crab meat, approximately 
2 c. grated Swiss cheese
1 c. grated mozzarella cheese
1/4 c. fresh spring onion
1/4 c. mayonnaise 
2 T. lemon juice
Old Bay for topping 
2 pkg. Hungry Jack biscuits (the ones that are flaky) 

(Ok, confession time: I did not measure any of this stuff. These measurements are good for the first time making them, but once you get the hang of it, you can more or less of the ingredients and it will still taste fantastic!)

First, you need to pull apart the crab into little chunks, like shown below.

Then mix together in a bowl crab meat, Swiss and mozzarella cheeses, onion, mayonnaise, and lemon juice. It should like this.

Then open the biscuits and pull them apart. Because they are the flaky ones, they should easily separate into two or three layers. If you do not separate them, it will be too thick and overwhelming. Then place them on a lightly greased baking sheet and place about a heaping tablespoon (rounded in your palm) onto each biscuit section. Sprinkle lightly with Old Bay, and place in a preheated oven at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes. 
Here is what they look like unbaked!

Once they are done, put them on a platter and serve them to your guests hot. If you are taking these to an event, it is best to make the crab filling at home and then bake them at the event. This serves about 60 people. 
And wala! Hmmm hmmm!

Ok, here are some of the other pictures from the party!

This is my incredible leadership team! We are just so excited to eat and have fun!!!
