This might sound gross to some of you. To be honest cheesy crab bread is the last thing that appeals to me, this would be because shellfish is one of the few things that I don’t like. That might be why I like this. I make it with imitation crab meat, this is the only thing I ever buy it for and it is rare that this bread is made. My sister growing up used to make it all the time for dinner. It is a fatty comfort food and sometimes it just sounds good.
Mr.Picky likes anything on bread and with cheese so he also enjoys it. It is verily rich so a piece or two is usually good for the year. I try to serve a decent amount of vegetables with this because it is full of fat. Did I mention it is worth the fat?
Usually cheesy bread is a side to some sort of main dish. But Cheesy crab bread should be thought of more as an opened face sandwich. You can easily reheat any leftovers in the over for the same cook time.
Cheesy Crab Bread:
- 8 oz. imitation crab meat, flaked or shredded
- 2 cups shredded cheddar, mozzarella, or cheese blend
- 1/3-1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1 Tbs Johnny’s garlic seasoning
- 1/4 cup red or green onions, finely chopped
- 1 Tbs butter, softened
- 1 loaf french bread, sliced lengthwise
Combine all ingredients but the bread and mix until evenly combined.
Spread the mixture evenly over the halves of french bread.
Place bread on a cookie sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes until cheese is bubbling and starting to brown.
Slice and Serve hot!
