3 dashes hot-pepper sauce
2 tablespoons unsalted butter -- melted
16 sheets melba toast rounds

Preparation / Directions:

Simple to prepare and serve. If you like, use tuna, small cooked shrimp or even deviled ham in place of the crab. Preheat broiler. Combine crab, lime or lemon juice, lime peel, green onion, parsley, Worcestershire sauce, mustard and hot-pepper sauce. Taste and adjust seasonings. Brush melted butter on toast rounds and arrange in a single layer in a broiler pan. Top each round with a portion of the crab mixture, then with 1-1/2 tsp cheese. Broil until cheese is melted and crab mixture is hot. Makes 16 appetizers. Source: "Hotter than Hell" by Jane Butler ISBN 0-89586-542-4
