This recipe is so delicious. I couldn't get the small envelope of crab only the pound tin and that was too much so I used artificial crab - not the same but still very tasty. The gruyere was warm right through but didn't completely melt. I will be making these again, next time with real crab..28 Apr. 19 Attractive tasty appetizer.
