I don’t know one person who doesn’t love a delicious grilled cheese sandwich. Make it even better by adding crabmeat to the mix. This delightful treat is perfect for weekend lunches or anytime for that matter. You can also cut it into bit-size pieces and serve it as an appetizer if you’re hosting a July 4th party.

  • 8 Ounces Crab Claw Meat (Picked Through)
  • 8 Ounces Lump Crabmeat (Picked Through)
  • 1 Tablespoon Creole Seasoning
  • 1 Tablespoon Green Onion (Thinly Sliced)
  • 1 Pound Sharp Cheddar Cheese (Grated)
  • 1 Pound Fontina Cheese (Grated)
  • 16 Slices Sourdough Bread Or Any Bread You Want
  • 2 Medium Ripe Tomatoes (Cut Into 1/4 Inch Slices)
  • 8 Ounces Unsalted Butter
  1. In medium-size bowl combine all crabmeat, Creole seasoning, and green onions.
  2. In another medium-size bowl combine both cheeses. Place 2 ounces of cheese on one slice of bread, then place 2 ounces crabmeat evenly on top of cheese. Top with 2 slices of tomatoes. Top with another 2 ounces of cheese. Place slice of bread on top.
