Crabby Dipper Grilled Cheese Sandwich
Gooey, rich and delicious, this grilled cheese is simply “melty yumminess,” according to its creator, chef Michael Howell from the Tempest Restaurant in Wolfville, Nova Scotia.
- Lemon Mayonnaise
- 1/3 cup mayonnaise
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- Crab Dip
- 3/4 cup crab meat
- 1/3 cup cream cheese softened
- 1 jar marinated artichokes drained and chopped
- 1 tsp fresh parsley chopped
- to taste ground black pepper
- 4 oz smoked Canadian gouda cut into thin slices
- 4 slices Italian whole wheat sandwich bread thick
- 1 tbsp unsalted butter
Serve with some “peel and eat” crab legs and some cocktail sauce.
Prepare the lemon mayonnaise up to three days ahead and the crab dip up to 24 hours; cover and refrigerate. Check crabmeat thoroughly for shells and remove any cartilage. If using frozen crab, thaw and press firmly in a sieve to remove any liquid. For a zesty twist, use any left-over lemon mayonnaise on other grilled cheese sandwiches.
