Crab Melt Sandwich


  • 1 ½ cups green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 ½ cups orange bell pepper, chopped
  • ¾ cup red onion, chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 1 ½ lb snow crab meat
  • 8 oz provolone cheese, grated
  • 8 slices potato or buttermilk bread olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons dry bread crumbs


Heat a heavy skillet over medium high heat and add 2 teaspoons of olive oil. Place one slice of bread in the pan about 3 to 4 minutes until toasty golden on both sides. Repeat the toasting batches as necessary. Set aside.
Saute the peppers, onions, garlic, salt, pepper and snow crab meat in 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium heat until peppers are soft &mdash about 5 minutes.
Place crab mixture on top of each bread slice. Top each slice with Provolone cheese. Bake the sandwiches in the oven for 6 to 7 minutes, until cheese is melted. For toasty, tops, sprinkle sandwiches with bread crumbs and broil for another minute.
