A never-fail appetizer and everything can be kept on the shelf or in the freezer for unexpected occasions. I often double the recipe, but then use three cans of crab...just a little richer.

  1. Combine the crab, green onions, cheese, lemon juice, curry powder and mayo in small bowl.
  2. Divide butterflake rolls into thin pieces (about ? inch or where it separates easily) and arrange on a cookie sheet.
