    One of the happiest finds I've come across in quite some time. Anything I could say to describe these would be trite and cliche and still, no words would suffice. It doesn't hurt that some of my favorite foods and flavors on the planet are all in this sandwich - Alaskan King crab meat, black olives, artichokes, cheddar, tomatoes. Seriously, this one was a no brainer. I used fresh, crusty, sourdough rolls that I buttered before heaping on the crab mixture. Other than substituting a little friendlier Tabasco sauce for the cayenne and adding the green onion to taste, I made these exactly as the recipe directs. And why wouldn't I? - to mess around with this recipe would be to mess around with perfection. All of the ingredients come together to create something uniquely flavorful, uniquely delicious and, well, just plain unique, period. Rich, creamy, "crabby," elegant, colorful, can't wait for the next bite delicious. So many colors, flavors and textures going on, this really made for one, memorable sandwich. I served this with a copy cat version of Olive Garden's Chicken and Gnocchi Soup, which made for a totally satisfying and delicious supper. Regrettably, this recipe has not been reviewed in two years. Folks, you've GOT to try this!  -  22 May 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    My husband absolutely loved this! Made it on a prepared loaf of garlic bread so give it a bit more flavour (especially for us garlic lovers). Since making it for the first time 3 weeks ago, he's had me make it 5 times. We both prefer it with a mixture of shrimp and crab. Fantastic easy recipe to make on a rushed evening.  -  16 Oct 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Wow! I made these for an impromptu dinner party and they made a huge hit! I used marinated artichokes instead of the canned ones, though. Yum!  -  31 May 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
