Crab Stuffed Cheddar Bay Biscuits

There’s nothing quite like the joy of bringing a little coastal flair to our Midwest tables, and my Crab Stuffed Cheddar Bay Biscuits might just transport you to the nearest harbor with a single bite. We’re taking the beloved Cheddar Bay biscuits – you know, the kind that you might find at a certain seafood restaurant that’s famous for them – and we’re sneaking in a savory, creamy crab filling that’s going to knock your socks off. Whether you’re celebrating a special occasion or just want to spice up a family dinner, this recipe is a showstopper that’s sure to become a new favorite.

Now, these stuffed beauties are a star on their own, but if you’re looking to round out your meal, consider a crisp, green salad with a refreshing vinaigrette, or some steamed veggies lightly seasoned with butter and herbs. And if it’s soup season, they’re a perfect companion to a warm bowl of clam chowder or tomato bisque.

Ingredients

  • – 1 box Cheddar Bay biscuit mix (including ingredients called for on the biscuit mix box (typically milk, butter, and sometimes cheese)
  • – 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • – 1 cup canned crab meat, drained and flaked
  • – 2 tablespoons green onions, finely chopped
  • – 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • – 1/2 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
  • – Extra melted butter for brushing
  • – Fresh parsley, chopped for garnish

Directions

  • 1. Preheat your oven according to the biscuit mix box instructions and line a baking sheet with parchment paper for easy cleanup.
  • 2. Prepare the Cheddar Bay biscuit mix as per the box’s directions. Take a moment here to enjoy the aroma of those herbs and that cheddar – it’s just heavenly.
  • 3. In a medium bowl, mix together the softened cream cheese, crab meat, green onions, garlic powder, and Old Bay seasoning until well combined. This is your rich and oh-so-tasty filling.
  • 4. Scoop out heaping tablespoons of the biscuit batter onto the prepared baking sheet. Flatten them slightly with the back of the spoon, making a small well in the center of each.
  • 5. Dollop a spoonful of the crab mixture into the well of each biscuit. Top with another tablespoon of biscuit batter, covering the crab mixture completely.
  • 6. Bake according to the package instructions, or until the biscuits are golden and puffed – usually, it’s around 10 to 15 minutes, but keep an eye on them. Every oven is a bit different.
  • 7. Brush the tops with melted butter right when they come out of the oven, because what’s life without a little extra buttery goodness?
  • 8. Sprinkle a touch of chopped fresh parsley over the top to add a pop of color and a hint of freshness.

Variations & Tips

  • – If you have someone in the family who’s not a fan of seafood, simply omit the crab from a few biscuits and maybe sneak in a little extra cheese.
  • – Feel adventurous? You can try adding finely diced red peppers or a sprinkle of smoked paprika to the crab mixture for an additional flavor kick.
  • – Not a fan of green onions? Chives make an excellent substitute, or you can omit them altogether for a milder taste.
  • – Last but not least, always check your pantry before running to the store – you might just have everything you need for this delightful recipe right at home.

Gather your loved ones around the table and enjoy these crabby delights straight from the oven. Warm, cheesy biscuits packed with succulent crab – it’s more than a meal, it’s a moment to cherish. Happy baking!
