Bringing the wonderful taste of crab rangoon to a dinner roll!
I love crab rangoon but I don’t really enjoy frying it. I think I probably get enough fried foods as it is. Enter the crab rangoon crescent roll!
I know there’s some controversy about using real crab or imitation crab. I really don’t mind imitation crab. It’s always in the refrigerator because it’s a quick and delicious snack, low in calories and low in fat.
I had to pick one or the other for the calorie count, though. So, the calorie count uses imitation but you are welcome to make your own choice, of course.
This just melts in your mouth. It’s delicious with that warm cream cheese. So yummy!
Use a pizza cutter to cut the piece of pastry into three even pieces. There are two sheets of this puff pastry in the box so you’ll have six rectangles.
Cut each rectangle diagonally to form a triangle. As you can see, I wasn’t perfectly accurate with my cutting!
Put a nice dollop of crab mixture on each triangle, at the wide end.
Then roll up to the point.
Brush each roll with some melted butter then put them in the oven for about 20-23 minutes.
It’s entirely possible that you may want to make your entire meal only on these rolls. Enjoy!
