If you’ve got a rimmed baking sheet and an oven, you’ve got a foolproof way to cook crab legs for a crowd. Use the pre-cooked and flash-frozen crab legs you can find at the grocery store for the best quality meat.
The sheet pan guarantees easy cooking and cleanup, so all you have to focus on is eating. Serve straight from the pan and set out a large bowl for empty shells.
