This is a combination of the crab rangoon reciept I saw on here and a little bit of the Crab Bake reciept I saw ! I love crab rangoons but I love the crab bake that I alway get when we go to a local chineese restaurant ! So I thought "hey why not put them together ?" This is very cheesey and very rich so with that said ,"if you are on a diet dont make this dish " Hope you enjoy it! I know my hubby did ! But you must love cheese and crab to love this dish !
I am bad about measurements , ive always eyeballed things when cooking ! Im as bad about it as Rachel Ray lmao !
you are going to need a fyn pan ,a mixing bowl and a large glass baking dish
chop green onions and celery into small peices add fork full of minced garlic then add enough butter to pan to saute veggies and add all to pan for about 3-5 mins.
then break apart crab meat and add to pan ,mix well , turn heat down , you just wanna warm the crab meat at this point , when crab meat is warm turn off heat and let set .
in mixing bowl add cream cheese ,chives (i use probley a palm full ) use your desired amount ,onion powder (half a palm full) add to your taste to season mix , place mixture in microwave for about a minute...this will pop so cover while in microwave. remove and mix till creamy ,after which add 2 tbsp of mayo (your choice but i used Dukes) just to add a little more creaminess <this is optional), add salt and pepper to taste .
combine crab meat mixture to cream cheese and 1 cup of shereded cheese and mix well
pour mixture into large glass baking pan , top with other cup of shreded cheese and bake at 350 for 35 mins or until cheese is melted and warm all the way through , serve warm and enjoy !
