Here's the scenario: you are at home and hungry for food. You have to cook up something scrumptious for you and your boyfriend/girlfriend/spouse/child/friend, but the ingredients you have on hand are limited.
You have fresh crab meat, sliced sourdough, and green onions. Using these products, along with whatever you currently have on hand in your cupboard and refrigerator, what would you make?
To see what I would whip up,
- I would start by chopping the green onions. I would grate some Parmesan cheese and also chop some celery and garlic.
- I would mix all of this with the crab meat, a little bit of mayonnaise, a squeeze of lemon, and salt and pepper to taste.
- I would toast a slice of the bread under a broiler.
- I would top the bread with the crab salad mixture. I would bake it in the oven until the whole things is warm, melty, and toasty. I would call it an open faced crab melt and serve it with chilled bubbly.
