Crab Rangoon Grilled Cheese Sandwich~A Crazy Cooking Challenge

It's that time again~Crazy Cooking Challenge time! This month our challenge is Grilled Cheese Sandwiches. I have never been a huge fan of grilled cheese sandwiches, but after making and eating the recipe I found, I have had a change of heart! I found the perfect, yummy grilled cheese sandwich on a blog called i am a food blog. What a wonderful blog! It's full of delicious recipes that I want to try and you will too! There is a fantastic recipe for Tomato Basil Bufala Salad, a Pizza Dough recipe, and a recipe for a porchetta sandwich with a Salsa Verde sauce that looks and sounds incredible. I can't wait to give them a try!
I picked a Crab Rangoon Grilled Cheese Sandwich to make. Oh, so yummy! It is creamy, saucy, a little messy, and a bit rich. Oh, did I add delicious?! Because it is!! I made this Grilled cheese on regular white bread. When I make it again, I think I will use the mini flat style buns. They will give this yummy treat the elegance it deserves!
Crab Rangoon Grilled Cheese
2 slices Bread
1 tablespoon Butter (softened)
1 1/2 tablespoons Cream Cheese (softened)
1 tablespoon sliced Green Onion
2 tablespoon Crab
Sale and Pepper to taste
a couple drops Sriracha Sauce
Mix the cream cheese, green onion, and crab
in a bowl. I used the flake style imitation crab. Next
time I would like to try this with the real crab.
Add salt and pepper to taste. I did not add salt, 
because the crab added plenty for me. Drop in a few 
drops of sriracha sauce. Taste to see if you want more.
Spread your bread with the mix.
Split your tablespoon of butter between the two 
slices of bread, and grill on medium to low heat.
Watch your bread carefully, as it can burn in no time.
I speak from experience.
Enjoy!

Thank you to i am a food blog for the perfect recipe!
I will be seeing you again!

  10. I tried this recipe out for CCC, but the sriracha-mayo grilled cheese beat it by a narrow margin. Good stuff, regardless, and so much easier than "real" crab rangoon :)
