8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1 (8−count) can crescent rolls
1 cup lump crabmeat
1 egg yolk, beaten
1/2 teaspoon dillweed

Combine the cream cheese and green onions in a bowl and mix well.

Unroll the crescent roll dough on a greased baking sheet; do not separate the triangles. Press the dough
into an 8 x 11−inch rectangle. Spoon the crabmeat lengthwise down the center of the rectangle. Spread
the cream cheese mixture over the crabmeat. Fold the long edges of the rectangle over the cream
cheese mixture, slightly overlapping. Pinch the edges to seal. Arrange seam side down on the baking
sheet. Brush the top lightly with the egg yolk and cut slits. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 to 22 minutes
or until golden brown and flaky. Cut into 12 slices.

Serve warm.

Serves 12.

Crab Cakes


Crab Cakes

1 pound lump crab meat (check over carefully for shells)
3 or 4 tablespoons diced onion
3 tablespoons diced red bell pepper
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
1 egg
3 or 4 tablespoons plain bread crumbs
1 or 2 dashes cayenne pepper or fresh ground black pepper
Optional: chopped fresh garlic
1/2 cup plain bread crumbs

Mix all ingredients by hand. Do not over blend and try not to break apart the crab meat too much.
Mixture will be very wet and barely holding together. Mixture will make 4 large cakes or 6 smaller
ones. Place a 1/2 cup plain bread crumbs in a plate. Grab a handful of crab mixture and gently pat
together. Gently lay the cake onto the bread crumbs and flip onto the other side to coat. Put cakes into
the refrigerator for about an hour to firm up.

Coat a frying pan with oil. Sauté the crab cakes for 4 to 5 minutes on one side. Flip and cook another 2
to 3 minutes till browned.
