This is what my Grandma always calls this recipe. Although we don’t treat it like an appetizer. I always looked forward to this when we went to my Grandparents house. She is my only living Grandma left. I was very lucky to have 3 of my Grandparents still alive until the age of 41 (I’m 44 now). Not a lot of people can say that. I will always be grateful for my time with all of them. If I would have lost them in my selfish teenage years, I would have missed out on many stories, memories and many good times with them.
This is kind of an odd thing for breakfast but, that is how we would always have it and how I have it to this day. Or as a snack. You can tell it’s an “old” recipe because there is absolutely nothing healthy about it! My Grandpa always told me it would put hair on my chest and I remember being little and going to check for “hair” after we ate…ha ha ha! My Grandpa lived to be 92 and was still climbing onto the roof at that age, against everyone’s warnings. I love people with spunk like that. (I also know I have a lot of his spunk!).
Do you have any of your Grandparents left? What is a favorite memory of yours with a Grandparent?
(Sorry for the picture quality too, my flash is not working right now).
1 stick butter (1/2 cup), room temperature
1 (6 oz.) can flaked crab meat, drained
1 (5 oz.) jar Old English cheese
1/2 t. garlic powder
1/4 t. fresh ground pepper
1/2 t. parsley flakes
2-3 dashes of Tabasco sauce
1 dash of red pepper flakes
We’ve also put this on cocktail bread and put it under the broiler for a couple minutes…yummy! I’m sure all you foodie people can think of many ways to use this. This is soooo comfort food to me. I want to snuggle up on the couch after I eat this and read, like I used to do at Grandma’s :D Just not Dr. Seuss. Well maybe…;)
Have a great weekend y’all!
