Ingredients

    1 lb crawfish tails
    1 stick butter
    1 onion
    3/4 tsp. garlic cloves minced
    3/4 cup chopped parsley
    3/4 cup green onion
    1 can cream of shrimp soup
    4 oz. Velveeta cheese
    1 tsp black pepper
    1/2 tsp cayenne
    1/2 tsp Tony Chacherie's
    1 tbsp hot sauce
    2 bags of Pistolette rolls (24)

Directions

First prepare the pistolettes rolls; cut off one end, about 11/2-inch thick, and set aside. Take a knife and cut a pyramid shape opening into the heart of the roll and remove the middle of the roll. Keep the two pieces of roll together for an easier fit. Set aside. Make a glue with 1 part flour and 3 parts water - Set aside.

In medium saucepan over medium heat melt the butter and sauté the onion, bell pepper, celery and garlic until onions have wilted.
Add the seasonings along with the cans of cream of mushroom and/or cream of shrimp. Add the Velveeta cheese and stir until completely melted. Add the crawfish/shrimp to the mixture. Note - you could chop the crawfish into smaller pieces as in a dip. Bring to a boil then simmer about 10 minutes. Do not forget to stir to prevent scorching. You could choose to add more or less cheese to achieve your desired "pudding" consistency. Add the parsley and green onions to mixture combining well. Once cooked set aside to cool some.

Once cooled, fill the pocket of the bun with 1/4 cup of the filling. Dip the nose of the bun in the "glue" of flour and water and attach it to the same bun. Push the roll to the side of the tray to secure.

Stuffed Pistolettes may now be baked at 375 degrees F until golden brown about 20 minutes. If frying, drop into heated cooking oil until browned. Make sure there is enough oil to cover the pistolettes. Drain fried pistolettes on paper towels; serve hot.

The pistolettes can be frozen until needed. Remove from freezer one hour before baking or frying. These are the best!
