Crab and cheese

This appetizer is a family favorite and so easy to make.  The recipe makes about 2 pint containers, so use one now and freeze one for later.

1/2 lb. butter ( 2 sticks)
1 lb. block of Velveeta cheese
1 lb. crab meat ( I use lump or special)
Tabasco Sauce (optional)
English muffins

Cube the butter and Velveeta and place in a double boiler when the water starts simmering.  Stir frequently until this mixture has melted and combined. Add the crab meat and a few shakes of Tabasco if using and combine well.
Cool and spread on English muffin halves . Quarter each half and place them on a sprayed baking sheet.  Bake at 400F for 10 -12 minutes.
Each pint will cover a little more than 1 package of muffins.
