Ingredients

  • 1 stick room temperature butter
  • 1 pound package Kroger® Flake Style Crab Select Imitation Crab Meat
  • 2 cups Kroger® Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 1/4 cup onions, chopped
  • 20 mini bread rolls (round brioche or dinner rolls work best)
  • 8 ounces jar pure lump crab meat
  • 5 ounces jar sharp cheddar cheese spread
  • 8 ounces container Kroger® Sour Cream
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • Medium-size ice cream scooper

Directions

  • Slightly slice the tops of the dinner rolls, ½” away from the top, with a bread knife.
  • Score the dinner rolls in a circular pattern with a bread knife, without going all the way to through the bottom. Pinch and scoop out the bread and crumbs inside of each dinner roll to form a vessel or cup.
  • Cream the butter, sour cream, cheese spread and pepper in your stand-up or hand mixer.
  • Mix the imitation crabmeat, chopped onions and sharp cheddar cheese until the crab flakes are separated. Fold in the lump crabmeat without breaking it down too much.
  • Scoop a heaping amount of the crab filling into each bread cup.
  • Place on a sheet pan and into the oven on the broil setting. Broil until the tops brown and the cheese is melted.
