Grilled Crab and Cheddar Sandwich

"Way better than a Tuna Melt! Sometimes I add a slice of tomato to this sandwich before cooking, which makes it even more delicious."

Ready In:




  • In a medium sized bowl place the crab or surimi and pick through to remove any bones or cartilage.
  • Stir in the cheese, green onions and just enough mayonnaise to hold it all together.
  • Spoon the crab on 4 slices of bread and top with remaining bread.
  • Heat a griddle to medium-low heat.
  • Brush tops of bread liberally with melted butter and place butter side down on hot griddle.
  • Cook slowly until golden and crisp on the bottom, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Brush tops with melted butter and turn to cook the other side, again slowly until bread is browned, 2 minutes more.
  • Cut in half and serve while still hot.

  1. My husband enjoyed this. You could use so many different kinds of cheeses.
  2. Well, I cheated and used the fake crabmeat (in the frozen pkg) and just shredded it. I also used my homemade whole wheat bread, so it made closer to 6 servings (still saving some for another day). Used the electric skillet at 350° and turned out beautifully! Two out of 3 kids liked it too. :) Will save this for a different lunch.
  3. Quick and easy to put together. I used can crab meat, soy mayonnaise and white bread. Was a delicious lunch. Thank you Geema


<p>Life often interupts our comfortable routines in very unexpected ways and in the past three years I've certainly faced some challenges.&nbsp; As a health nut who ate mostly vegetarian I was beyond shocked to discover that I was diabetic.&nbsp;<img title=Yell src=../tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-yell.gif border=0 alt=Yell /> I shouted and rebelled and cried.&nbsp; But the good news is that I can control my glucose levels simply by eating very low carb.&nbsp; What a complete turn around it was to&nbsp;pass up&nbsp;all my high carb vegetarian foods like grains, and veggies and embrace meat!&nbsp;<img title=Surprised src=../tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-surprised.gif border=0 alt=Surprised /> I've adjusted to this limited diet and thanks to Zaar can eat a nice variety of healthful meals.</p> <p>&nbsp;The next challenge was a freakish fall I took while in New York with my daughter that left me paralyzed and in much pain. I thank God that I am so much better today after more than two years recovery, with total mobility and just some minor pain in my arms and hands.&nbsp; Cooking and communicating here was not really on my priority list.&nbsp; But, I am back in action and ready to cook, take photos, and enjoy this wonderful community of friends.<img title=Laughing src=../tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-laughing.gif border=0 alt=Laughing /></p> <p>My husband and I continue to enjoy our grandchildren and being closely involved with their day to day activities.&nbsp; I am also the proud owner of a sweet grey and white cat who came to my door as a little kitten 6 months ago.&nbsp; Her name is Bonny and you can read her story here:&nbsp; <a href= target=_blank></a>.</p> <p>&nbsp;When I have time for myself, I love to do all things artistic...drawing, pastels, paper craft, scrapbooking, and most recently jewelry making.&nbsp; I have set up a website on ETSY ( shown on this page by my website)and you can go there and see my creations.<img title=Cool src=../tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-cool.gif border=0 alt=Cool /><br /><br /><br /><br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><br /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /></a> <br /><br /><img src= alt= /></p>
