Seafood Appetizer

This appetizer is inexpensive, quick and easy and is a great compliment to most menus.
Crab/shrimp meat-English muffin appetizers

1 7 1/2 ounce canned crabor shrimp meat, drained
1 6 ounce jar Old English, Kraft, Cheese wiz spread (Old English is best)
1/2 cup butter
1 tablespoon real mayonaise
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
12 English Muffins

Bring cream cheese and butter to room temperature. Mix all ingredients together. Spread on muffin halves immediately, quarter and broil 5-8 minutes or until golden brown. After assembly muffin halves or quarters can be frozen and taken out to bake as needed.

Heat in 350 deg.F oven for 5-10 minutes or until just browning. Serve warm
Some cooks say that freezing the quarters for at least 30 minutes before broiling improves taste. I have done this both ways and really don't see or taste the difference.
