Potato Puff with Crab

Submitted by: SPINNYBOO

Introduction

This is a favourite in my house. It may sound weird but it is really good. We eat it for dinner, but it would be good for brunch.

(I use the fake crab ... "sea legs" and like it more! I have also made it with cooked chicken)

    This was good, but the texture was a bit off for me. What kind of mashed potatoes do you use? - 1/12/09

    INSTANT POTATO BUDS... they have the "strength" to handle it better than a potato that you mash ... if you don't like instant, make sure you have the right kind of potato as baking and mashing end up completely different.

    This sounds good and will probably try it. However the sodium at 1155.5 is very high for one setting for someone with high blood pressure. But truely sounds tasty! - 1/12/09

    Sounds good, I have a Question, Do you poor this into a cake pan/dish or do you dish it onto a cookie sheet like crab cakes? - 12/27/08

    Sorry .... I put it in a 2 quart corningware baking dish (a deep one about 8 inches across) as it puffs up in the dish...be sure to spray with pam due to the eggs.

  • This is very "GOOD".... I put 1/4 c. of low fat bag cheese on top and let it get golden on top. - 6/5/11

  • Delicious - I added a little red & green pepper and substituted McCormick Salt Free for 1/2 of the Old Bay. It still is pretty high in sodium so it will be saved and enjoyed on "special indulgence" days. - 3/1/10

  • too much sodium - 12/22/08

    Reply from SPINNYBOO (12/23/08)
    I know that the sodium was high --- my BP is too low so I don't count it myself...and as it is only 1/5th of what a daily RDA is, it shouldn't be overkill.

    If you leave out or use something other than OldBay, the sodium will be a lot lower
