TheseSweet Corn And Crab Puffsare the kind of bite size goodies that I love serving at parties. The corn and sweet crab meat pairs together beautifully. Crab meat is pricey and these puffs are a fantastic way to serve a crab dish to a crowd without breaking the bank. You might want to consider attaching a sign which reads betcha cant eat just one! They are simply thatgood. On second thought perhaps that isnt a good idea your guests will figure that one out all on their own.
