Crab Tartlets Appetizer Recipe


We’re at day 5 of #HolidayAppetizers week. I’m a day late on this one but it’s well worth the wait. For day 5, I made a recipe that is a turned up version of the typical mini-quiche for the first time, Crab Tartlets, and I will definitely be making these again. These Crab Tartlets are super tasty and very easy to make. If you’re looking for additional treats to your appetizer platters, try 40 of our favourite cookies, squares and candy recipes.

  2. My daughter would love these – she loves seafood! The tarts look festive – no fuss preparation.

  3. I am so angry right now. I was going to take these to a family picnic. Either the time is wrong or the temperature is wrong. Either way these crab melts burnt on me. 

    • Hi Frankie. The time is approximate for this reason as every stove may cook slightly different; this is the time and temperature used for my oven however I always recommend watching. They should be set and golden brown along the tart edges.
