Brush one side of each slice of bread with melted butter. Place face-down in a non-stick sauté pan, over medium heat. Spread sauce over each slice of bread, and place a piece of cheese on each slice. Place sliced avocado on one bread slice, and crab on the other bread slice. Cook until bread is golden brown. Place both pieces of bread under a broiler for 1 ½ minutes until cheese is melted. Remove from broiler, put slices together, cut in half and serve.
