Crab Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
The filling in these crab grilled cheese sandwiches is just like a good crab salad. It just needs a little ‘help’, and that comes in the form of melted oooey gooey Swiss cheese on crispy golden bread.
Servings 2 sandwiches
- 6 ounces lump crab meat picked over for shells
- 2 tablespoons mayonnaise plus more, perhaps
- 4 tablespoons green onions chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
- 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 4 slices bread I used 6 small slices of Vienna bread
- 4 slices Swiss cheese
- 1 tablespoon butter
In a bowl combine the crab, mayonnaise, green onions, lemon zest and pepper.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat or turn a panini press on high.
Slather one side of each piece of bread with butter.
Lay two slices of bread-butter side down in the skillet or onto the panini press.
Add a slice of cheese to each, then divide the crab mixture between them.
Add remaining slice of cheese to each and top with other piece of bread, butter-side up.
Fry until golden brown on the bottom then flip and fry on the other side until done, or close your press and cook until nice and golden brown.
Remove from skillet or panini press and slice and serve.
