Cheesy Crab Bread

Cheesy Crab BreadThis 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!

Feta and Tomato Spaghetti Squash

After trying Alfredo Spaghetti Squash I thought of endless toppings and ways to prepare spaghetti squash boats.  It is so simple and much healthier than sitting down to a bowl of pasta.  With endless fresh tomatoes from the garden and a large container of feta cheese a light bulb went off.

Not only was this filling and probably way more than a portion but I was starving.  It is squash how bad can it be for you?

Spaghetti Squash with Feta cheese and Fresh Tomatoes

Feta and Tomato Spaghetti Squash:

  • spaghetti squash, split and cleaned of guts
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1 small tomato diced
  • garlic seasoning to taste
  • salt to taste

 

The toppings are per half of squash.

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Prepare squash by cutting in half lengthwise with a sharp knife.  Scoop out seeds and place cut side down on a rimmed baking sheet covered with water.  Bake until tender, about an hour.

Once squash is cooked, use a fork to gently scrape the squash strand into the center.

Add oil, feta, and tomato and toss to combine.  Serve warm.

Enjoy as a main dish or as a side.
