Crab Rangoon June 10, 2012

Filed under: Food,Uncategorized — mypinterestadventure @ 1:06 am

Okay, so I LOVE crab rangoon, and I was a little hesistant on trying this “pin” out because I’m actually rather picky about crab rangoon, but I thought what the heck!  I again made a few substitutions based on what I had in my house and what I like.  Here is a link to the recipe.  It calls for:  4 ounces cream cheese, 1/3 cup mayonnaise, 1 clove garlic, minced or a few dashes of granulated garlic,2 green onions, sliced, 6 ounces good crab meat, and 30 mini Fillo cup shells.

I actually used minced garlic from my spices collection, so about a 1/4 tsp is equivalent to 1 clove/   I’m not a big onions fan and I didn’t have green onion, so I used about 1/4 cup of minced onion (again from my spice collection).  I could only find an 8 ounce package of crab meat, and I would guess I used about 6 1/2 or 7 ounces of it.  I figured if I used extra then oh well…  I also only had 15 Fillo cup shells, so when I filled them they were rather full.


So, you mix the first 4 ingredients together until smooth and add in the crab meat. Then fill each Fillo Cup. Since I only had 15 cups I REALLY filled them, and had a little extra left over, but not much.  Once you’ve filled the Fillo cups bake in 400 degree oven for 7 minutes.


Here are the 4 main ingredients.                Here is everything mixed together.                                      Here is the mixture in the Fillo Cups.

Here they are out of the oven, hot and ready to serve!

It also called to serve with duck sauce.  Again, I’m not a big fan, so I used Sweet and Sour Sauce. 

So, I’m sure you’re wondering what the verdict was.  I got a, “well these are pretty good” from Glenn, and then he preceded to eat most of them.  Lol!  I thought they were good.  Not quite as sweet as what you would get at a restaurant, but the sweet and sour sauce helped that.  These would be a nice party finger food.



Easy Pepperoni Rolls June 5, 2012

Okay, so I decided to try something else new tonight.  However, I did have to tweak things some based on what I had in my fridge.  I found this pin on pinterest the other day.   This is called easy pepperoni rolls (here is a link to the person where the pin originated).  I used a can of biscuits, pepperonis, mozzarella cheese slices, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, parmesan cheese, and butter spray.  The original recipe called for egg to brush on the biscuits, but I didn’t have any, so I used the butter spray.  Also, the recipe just called for regular buttermilk biscuits, and all I had was Grand

 I also used some Crescent Rolls too (because they needed to be used).  I also scaled down the recipe because I was only making these for a few people.

Okay, so I used my baking stone from Pampered Chef and sprayed it with cooking spray.  Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.  Take one of the biscuits and flatten it out.  Since I was using grands, I used 4 pieces of pepperoni and one piece of cheese.  I folded the cheese in half twice and placed it between the pepperoni.  Put this in the center of the biscuit and fold the biscuit around the cheese and pepperoni (you’ll kind of have a little bundle when you’re done) .  Then place it on the baking sheet seam side down.              

Spray the tops of the biscuits with the butter, then sprinkle the Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and Parmesan cheese on top.  Place it in the oven and bake for 20 minutes.

When I used the Crescent rolls I took a square (2 of the triangles) and folded it in half.  Then flattened it out like I did the biscuits.


The pepperoni rolls were done after 20 minutes, I let them cool.  Then, I warmed some pizza sauce to dip them in.  Yummy!  Again thumbs up at my house!
