Crab Cakes with Macaroni and Cheese

Dungeness Crab Cakes

If Dungeness crab is unavailable, you can’t get to the sf pier, other crab meat will produce good results. Regular mayo with 1 tsp of lemon zest and a zip of lemon juice makes a great lemon mayo in a pinch.

2 Red bell peppers (diced)
6 Stalks scallions
1 Pinch Garlic
1 Tbsp Butter
15 Table crackers
1 Tbsp Mayo
1 Tbsp Old Bay Spice
1 Egg
1 lb Dungeness crab

Sauté bell pepper and scallions with garlic in butter until soft

Process crackers to consistency of kosher salt
Place cooked peppers, scallions in mixing bowl, add cracker crumbs and combine
Add egg, mayo, mustard, and old bay, fold together
Gently fold in the Dungeness crabmeat
Chill for 1 hour
Form into 2 oz cakes
*Pan sear in hot oil, flip and finish in 350 degree oven
*with NInja air fryer convection oven, I skip the pan sear & go right to 400° oven, for 25 to 30 minutes; 15 minutes, then flip, return to oven for additional 10 minutes.

Homemade Macaroni and Cheese

making #homemademacncheese using #sharpcheddar #mildcheddar #colbyjack #mozzarella  AND the top has, besides mix of above, #parmesan & #romano
So YES! I got carried away.
#makeitwork …it is what it is. Que será, será ðŸŽ¼
As usual, I started out looking at a #recipe, so very 😜 loosely adapted from @phillyjaycooking ‘s “World’s Best Cheesy Baked Macaroni and Cheese”, along w/checking out the Culinary Fanatic’s “Ultimate Five Cheese Macaroni and Cheese”…on YouTube
I know…he warned of this ⚠️😳 BUT my plan was a SMALL dish.

SCORE! Thank you God 😊 the #macncheese turned out damn delicious 😋🙌 So did the #crabcakes 🦀 made in #ninjaairfryeroven
