"These muffins remind me of a New England crab or lobster roll, where they simply pile warm, buttery seafood on those toasted rolls. These would make a great game day party snack."

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) and lightly spray a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. Combine crab meat, 1/2 cup pepper Jack cheese, mayonnaise, chili paste, lemon zest, and Worcestershire sauce together in a large bowl. Season with salt. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
  3. Whisk flour, cornmeal, salt, and baking soda together in a large bowl. Stir in eggs, buttermilk, green onion, and melted butter; whisk until combined.
  4. Divide batter evenly in the prepared muffin tin, reaching 3/4 full. Tap the pan on the countertop to remove any air bubbles.
  5. Scoop 1 to 2 tablespoons of the crab mixture into the center of each muffin. Lightly press the crab mixture into the batter. Top each muffin using 1/4 cup pepper Jack cheese.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes.

These were good, but a bit on the bland side. The filling was really good, but I think that the corn muffin part needed more salt/flavor. These were really easy to make and I do like the idea, s...

I loved the basic idea for these but they just didn't have much flavor. The corn muffin was just over powering on what little flavor they did have. Great idea but it needs some tweaking to be as...
