This is a great recipe, did this for a church brunch had a lot of compliments. Did not use the brie cheese used smoked Gouda instead. Will make this again.

they were good, but not super good. I might make it again.

Several mentioned adding Old Bay seasoning and hot sauce. How much of each? I can't wait to try them. I wonder how they would be with chicken or sausage.

Nice recipe, however, the ingredients do not list pimento.

Simple and excellent! I will add some seasonings to the crab mixture next time though.

These were great but not without Old Bay Seasoning (as someone else suggested) and a little hot sauce. That really made them great. I had to make another 40 because they were so good.

How much pimento do you add? I didn't see it listed in the ingredients but you mention adding them to it.

Easy to make, sounds and looks fancy but was on the bland side. Everyone liked them though, so maybe just me.
