Crab Bread

As soon as I saw this on Molly Jean's blog, I knew that I wanted to make it right away! I love crab, imitation and all. My DH didn't like this, but that had a little to do with the fact that I burnt the bread a bit.  Oops.

Crab Bread
adapted from The Rookie Chef

1 package of imitation crab legs
8 ounces of cream cheese
~1 teaspoon Garlic Garlic from Tastefully Simple
~1 1/2 teaspoon Onion Onion from Tastefully Simple
1 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons shredded cheddar cheese

I put my bread in the oven for a little while before topping with the crab mixture. I think that's where I went wrong, the bread was too crumbly and too crunchy. I didn't want a soft, mushy bread so that's why I put it in the oven in the first place. (You know, how sometimes with topped bread, the bread is nice and soft but then the mixture makes it even more soft?) I think it would have been fine to just follow Molly's recipe as it was.

We enjoyed these for our movie night on NYE. We're very exciting people, can't you tell? :-)
