A quick and easy meal after a long day of holiday fun! (And it's easily doubled if your fam is "starving"!)
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
2 tbsp finely chopped onion
1-1/2 tsp (each) of chopped sweet red pepper, prepared horseradish, Dijon mustard
1/8 tsp (each) salt and cayenne pepper
1/4 cup mayonnaise, divided
6 ounces imitation crabmeat, chopped
1 tbsp butter
2 English muffins, split and toasted
4 slices tomato
1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese
In a large bowl, combine the egg, bread crumbs, onion, red pepper, horseradish, mustard, salt and cayenne pepper; stir in 2 tbsp mayonnaise. Add crab and mix well. Shape into four patties. In a large skillet, cook patties in butter over medium heat for 3-4 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
Place the English muffins on a baking sheet (remember to toast them lightly first!). Spread with the remaining mayonnaise. Top with tomato, crab pattoes and cheese. Broil 4-in. from the heat for 2 minutes or until cheese is melted.
