Bread and Crab Salad

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Chef PotPie

Here's something really different; crab salad made with bread! Everyone in my family loves this stuff. It's very rich, so for health reasons I don't make it very often. You can also use shrimp or a combination of crab and shrimp. The amount of butter is an estimate, and time doesn't reflect the overnight refrigeration. Let me know what you think!

My mom used to make this years ago and it was only slightly different w/out swiss cheese. I tried making it without buttering the bread at all and omitting the swiss. It was awesome! I was afraid it would be dry but it was just fine. Everyone loved it again at a BBQ w/BBQ spareribs.
