Mom's Crab Melts

Updated: Apr 15, 2020

(by Ana Sortun)


This is a variation on a crab melt my mother used to make. In Seattle, we used Dungeness crab. I love having these with tomato soup.

2 c. heavy cream

2 T. brandy or ¼ cup white wine

pinch of fennel seed

1 bunch scallions

1 lb. Maine crab meat

2 c. grated Asiago cheese

salt & pepper

4 English muffins, toasted

Heat cream with brandy and fennel seed until reduced by half.

Clean and cut scallions into 1-inch pieces, and stir into cream mixture.

Squeeze excess water out of crab, and fold into cream.

Stir in asiago cheese.

Smear onto toasted English muffins, and broil for minute or two until bubbly.

Serves 4.
