Do you know about Food52?
I made Merrill’s Crab Toasties for dinner last night and we loved them! I really appreciated the note about blending it lightly by hand because I would have just used a fork out of habit. I liked being one with the crab, as it were, at least for a little while.
What surprised us was how filling they were. My fella and I can eat a heckuva lot, and when we’d each had 2 (1 english muffin, halved) and set our plates down with finality, it was a little disconcerting. Only two? But they were so delicious!!
I had read about the toasties earlier in the week and by yesterday, I couldn’t take it anymore:
Must. Have. Merrill’s. Crab. Will. Spontaneously. Combust. Without. It.
The only changes I made to it is I used only mayonnaise (no sour cream) and I added purple Thai basil (inspired by the corn chowder I had at RaviSoups in July).
Ooh was it good!
And now it’s got me wanting my Mom’s Creamed Salmon. You add canned salmon and either fresh or frozen peas to a roux and serve it hot over english muffins. It’s insanely good and soo simple to make, just like the toasties.
Today I got a notice about Jenny’s Just Good Chili, but it’s over 30 degrees outside. Give me another month and I’ll be making chili every week. For now, I’m in search for something savory and satisfying for dinner.
I have some Merguez sausages in the fridge. Hmmm… I’m off to have a look and see what I can do.
I’ll let you know how it turns out.
