Gratin Crab Meat Bites » Simple and Healthy Recipe! ✅

This recipe is a family favorite. What makes it good is buying foley crab meat. You have to put tasty crabmeat in this dish, not a substitute, not a flat, lifeless crabmeat, and sorry, the box doesn’t cut it either. 6-8 ounces of Foley crab meat in the Boston area is $8-$10. (2011) One thing I didn’t include in the ingredients, is that I sometimes put the ready-to-eat dill sauce in this recipe. of sour cream and dill. I’d use fresh dill if I had it, instead of a dried one. Choose the Bay English muffins, they are in the refrigerator area if your store has them. If you don’t have them, choose your favorite. I made this stuffing in little pre-made wire cups and that works too. Crab meat stuffing is also good, spooned into a quiche, as is my recipe for crab meat quiche as well. Serve with a lightly seasoned green salad, as all these bites are very tasty. – Sandy La Fleur

  • 1 tablespoon minced red bell pepper

  • 1 tablespoon minced shallots

  • 2 tablespoons Hellman’s mayonnaise

  • 2 tablespoons sour cream

  • 1 teaspoon Tabasco hot sauce

  • 1/2 teaspoon dill

  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 splash of fresh lemon juice

  • 6 to 8-ounce container of fresh crab meat chunks

  • 1 beaten egg or egg white

  • 1/3 cup grated monterey jack cheese

  • 1/2 cup grated mixed cheeses, such as Mexican

  • 1/4 cup cheese such as jarlsberg, emmenthal, gruyere cheese, grated

  • 1 package English muffin bays

  1. Dice the peppers and shallots and place them in a bowl, adding the mayonnaise, sour cream, Tabasco, dill and garlic powder.

  2. Check the crab meat for large pieces of shell and sprinkle with fresh lemon juice, squeezing it all over the surface. Mix the crab meat in the bowl of mayonnaise, etc. Use forks to lift crab and fold loosely with mayonnaise.

  3. Add monterey jack cheese to mayonnaise and crab meat, mix again lightly

  4. Beat the egg or egg white and pour over the crabmeat, folding loosely

  5. Slice or dice the English muffin halves and place on a baking sheet cut side up, in rows. Spread evenly over surface of crab meat until container is empty. It should be a bit big. Sprinkle the surface with grated cheese and bake in the oven as if melting a tuna. I preheated my convection oven to 400. The standard oven temperature would be 425.

  6. Cook until fluffy, about 15 minutes before serving. Using a pizza cutter, cut the center of the English muffin halves, forming an X, making 4 half-muffin pieces. These triangles are easy to pick up, and if you’ve used the ratios I give here, they’re usually not so messy that you can’t pick them up and eat them with your fingers.
