Keep Bread Fresh (Practically) Forever With This Trick
You Will Never Look at Oreos the Same Way Again After Reading These Facts

What Would You Make?

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,

  1. I would start by chopping the green onions. I would grate some Parmesan cheese and also chop some celery and garlic.
  2. 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.
  3. I would toast a slice of the bread under a broiler.
  4. 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.

Lets mix a little bit of garlic, green onions, the crab and some cream cheese and put it on the french bread. We could put it under the broiler for a couple of minutes and its ready to go.

The first idea that popped in my head was making the exact same thing as you. Crab crostinis (?). But in the real world, I'd chuck the bread and the green onions and just eat the crab by itself. I LOVE crab!!! Real crab. Not crab with a "K" cuz that's not real. Dungeness is the best! I love going to crab feeds!

all i can think about are crabcakes with these or maybe make it into a stuffing for mushrooms?
Ooh! I have a great recipe for Crab Rangoons. I think it would come out similar if you roll out the bread to make a little wonton, and fry them up. Crab, cream cheese, a pinch of sugar, and the green onion!

I would take the crab meat and . . . give it to someone else before I phoned up Domino's. I'm not a big crab fan.

okay, this really only works if you have more in your fridge/pantry than honey, saltines, milk, and water. lol

I make a great crab dip with some spices, cream cheese, sour cream, sherry, crab, and I would just throw in the onions for a little something extra. Then use the bread to eat it with. Yum!

I must concur with those who have said crabcakes. Easy, yummy, and makes you seem like a kitchen whiz kid. I know that my bf would be thrilled to come home to this and would never suspect that I had a limited pantry.
