Cheddar Cheese Crab Bake

Recipe by Caryn Dalton
READY IN: 26mins




  • Wash your hands well (you will be mixing dough with them).
  • Preheat oven to 450.
  • Spray pizza baking sheet or jelly roll/baking sheet with non stick spray in a 8 inch circle in center of sheet.
  • Cut 2 TB of butter off of stick, then 1 TB off of stick.
  • Melt 1 TB of butter in microwave for a few seconds (be careful when you take it out not to burn yourself).
  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine Bisquick or baking mix, 1 cup of the cheddar cheese, milk and 1TB of the melted butter.
  • Mix with your hand until well combined.
  • Dough will form a sticky thick glob and mixture should not be dry or crumbly at all- Scrape excess off of hand and pat into ball- Pick up dough ball and put it into center of your sprayed circle on your baking sheet- Add any dough from bowl that you can scrape up.
  • Spread dough into a pizza shape about 8 inches in diameter, forming a lip around edge like a pizza- To do this, I just started from the center and kept mashing out towards the edges- The lip naturally formed for me this way- If your dough isn't round in shape, then shape it like you would playdough.
  • Wash your hands and dry well.
  • Take parsley flakes and, pinching them between your fingers make sure they are finely ground.
  • After grinding them well, sprinkle them on top of your dough.
  • Sprinkle the crabmeat on top of the parsley flakes.
  • Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top of the crabmeat.
  • Remember not to go all the way to the edge of your"pizza" with your cheese.
  • Bake for approx 15 minutes on center rack or until the cheese browns slightly.
  • While Bread is baking, melt the other 2 TB of Butter and combine with the garlic powder.
  • When bread is finished, take out of oven and immediately brush entire surface with the melted butter/garlic powder.
  • Put back in oven for 1 more minute.
  • Take out of oven and slice into 8 pieces with pizza cutter and serve hot.
