The second part of this post is going to be quick. The good thing about these two recipes I've shared with you is that you can make them simultaneously! Now I know you like that! So while you're waiting for the custard to bake, you can make these simple open-faced sandwiches. Bear in mind, that the servings on these are meant for a small group of four people. So if you're entertaining more, adjust the recipes accordingly for your crowd.
Today I give crab salad a new twist that I think you'll love!
Crab Salad Tostados
1 Hoagie Slice of bread (cut in half diagonally and then separated top and bottom)
1 cup of imitation crab meat (completely thawed)
2 tablespoons aged cheese Alfredo sauce
1/3 cup shallots
2 tablespoons Italian seasoning
1 tablespoon garlic and pepper seasoning
1/3 cup diced tomatoes
1/4 cup ricotta cheese
Combine the crab meat with the Alfredo sauce, shallots, tomatoes and seasoning. Stir until completely combined.
Lightly spray a pan with non stick spray. Toast the bread slices on both sides until desired consistency. Top bread slices with crab salad mix. Then top each tostado with a dollop of ricotta and serve.
