A big party, epic football game or crazy family fun night wouldn’t be the same without the most dee-lish appetizers on earth, right? Take your special day to the next level by serving up something better than chips and dip. Yeah, crab appetizers always get “oohs and aahs” from a crowd!

Now, I have one teeny-tiny favor to ask. When you serve these amazingly delicious crab appetizers at your next event, please make sure you invite me! Yes, I want to be your personal, professional taste-tester. Pretty please?

Most of these recipes give you the option of using imitation or fresh crab meat. Some people prefer the imitation because crabs are bottom feeders. I know that’s TMI for some people, but honesty is the best policy when it comes to food.

Some people prefer the imitation because it’s cheaper. Totally get that. Me? I prefer anything and everything labeled “crab.” If it’s an appetizer with crab meat, I’m digging in! I can ask questions about real versus imitation later — wink, wink!
