I did not use real crab meat, but instead used the fake stuff that comes in a package actually consisting of Alaska Pollock and Pacific Whiting (white fish) given crab flavors. Real crab meat is not cheap nor as easy to find here on the prairies! If you are allergic to seafood like my brother is it is unfortunate because Stephen and I found this appetizer to be quite tasty! Just take it easy when adding the cayenne pepper as I added a bit too much and they were a little hot!
1-8oz tube crescent roll dough
3oz cream cheese softened
1/4 cup mayo
3/4 cup cooked crabmeat, chopped
2 green onions chopped
1/8-1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
salt, pepper to taste
Heat oven to 375 degrees F, spray cookie sheet.
Unroll dough and make 6 by 4 rows (24 squares)
Mix ingredients in bowl and then divide among squares, roll dough over filling.
Bake 10-15 minutes or until golden brown, serve warm.
Interesting tidbit: The French name for appetizers is Hors d'oeuvre which literally means "outside of the masterpiece". Ancient Romans and Greeks are thought to have inspired our modern-day appetizers. Appetizers are served in nearly all cultures. http://158mainjpd.com/2014/02/19
The term "appetizers" seems to have appeared in both England and America in the 1860's. The salty foods served were meant to stimulate the digestive system preparing the stomach for the main dish.
