Cheesy Crabby Swirls

I still had some crab meat that I eager wanted to make something with and I had a puff pastry sheet I've been wanting to use. I didn't feel like making something sweet with it. Maybe something I can snack on. Think back on those Bell Pepper Swirls, but with crab and minus the bell pepper. Sounds good, right?

I rolled out the dough, sprinkled on some cheese then the crab and tried to roll it as tightly as I can. I say tried as it can be a bit tricky sometimes to roll up the dough without is ripping on you. Then when I cut it all the filling falls out. But I managed to keep them in tact. Phew.

I pressed them lightly to get them in that disc shape. One had subtly exploded in the oven while they backed though. That didn't matter. It was still awesome! I had these as my dinner, but they can be as an appetizer or something to share with others. It's some cheesy crabby goodness

Makes 8-10 swirls depending on thickness.



Cheesy Crabby Swirls
5 oz crab meat
Shredded Cheese
1 puff pastry

Preheat your oven to 357˚F

Roll out the puff pastry on a floured surface and roll it out lightly. Spread the cheese and crab meat on the puff pastry and roll tightly length-wise.

Cut into 8 or 10 rolls and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Press down on the swirls to make them into disc shapes.

Bake for 15-20 min.

Jenn, that's ingenious and resourceful! Puff pastry + crab + cheese is a new idea to me, too, but I sure LIKE! I'll bet these would make would make a great party appetizer, too if you made small rolls.

You are still the hardest working girl in the food blogging business. :)

Forget these as appetizers - that would mean I could only have a few to 'leave room for dinner'. I'd eat them as dinner, too! They would go great with a nice salad . . .

This recipe originated because you wanted to use up a puff pastry sheet, but I'll have to buy a new box to be sure I can make it!

Dawn said...

girl how in the hell do you have leftover crabmeat? seriously.
if you don't eat all these up you better send them to me. I will have no problem downing 50 or so...

This would be one of those things where I'd have a little bite and end up eating the whole batch.
