Crabby Pretzels

April 4, 2017

Every year during the Lenten season, I try my best to stick to “Fish Fridays”.  Inevitably, every year, this leads to me getting JUST a little bored by week 3.  Luckily, boredom is the catalyst of creation in my kitchen, which always leads to something new being added to our repertoire of recipes.  This year’s addition?

Crabby Pretzels- quick, easy, and delicious.  I can see us eating these all summer long.

Crabby Pretzels

1 box frozen pretzels
1/2 lb crab meat
1 stick butter, melted
1/3 to 1/2 cup fresh grated asiago cheese
1 tbsp old bay
2 tbsp chopped chives

Combine melted butter, crab, old bay, cheese, and chives.
Top pretzels heartily.
Bake for 8 minutes @ 400 degrees, then transfer to under broiler for an additional 5 minutes.

Enjoy with an ice old beer, unless you gave that up for lent.
(I won’t tell. Your secret’s safe with me.)
