Shrimp Toast Appetizers

WARNING: these are so addictive you may hate me for giving you this recipe.

Of course you may love me for it too.  It is one of my favorites.  My Aunt Louise (my Godmother) loved to entertain and she gave me this recipe. One of the great things about it is that you can prepare it ahead of time and freeze it so you can enjoy these whenever the mood strikes or whenever you have unexpected company.  I always make these with a can of baby shrimp but canned crab is super yummy as well.  This recipe would be a fantastic snack for your Super Bowl Party or a Movie Night.  I HIGHLY suggest you double or even triple this recipe. I kid you not, these will disappear....fast. 

Shrimp Toast
8 English muffins (preferably Thomases) split
1 can baby shrimp drained (or crab meat)
1 jar Old English cheese spread (5oz)
1 tbl mayo
1/2 tea garlic powder  (or to taste)
1 stick butter softened

Combine all of the ingredients  and spread evenly over the english muffins.  (-at this point you can stack these and freeze in a ziploc for use at a later date-)  cut the muffins into quarters and bake on a cookie sheet in a 350 oven until golden brown and slightly crunchy.  The baking time will vary depending on the brand and thickness of the muffin you use.  Watch it...you may need to remove the thinner piece earlier than the thick.  These are terrific piping hot...and at room temp!

Excuse me...I need to go make these...now!
