My roomate ordered Chinese food Saturday and she had some of those cream cheese and crab wontons that are called Crab Rangoon. I thought I might be able to make something similar. What I came up with was good. Not quite the same as a warm gooey fired cream cheese concoction, but still good. Here it is:.
1 Medifast egg packet.
1 Medifast cream soup (I used the cream of broccoli).
1/8 tsp. baking powder.
4 oz. crabmeat (use canned or fresh. I don't recommend imitation).
1/2 cup cottage cheese.
2 tbls. chopped green onion.
1-3 drop Sesame oil (this is not even an 1/8 of a tsp.).
A pinch of salt and pepper.
Okay... first the tricky part, but it is worth it.... Get a large glass. Place a clean, unused pantyhose (or cheesecloth) in it and place the cottage cheese inside. Then pull the edges of the pantyhose over the outside of the glass until the cottage cheese is at least 3 inches from the bottom of the glass. Secure with a rubber band.
This will effectively make the cottage cheese very thick and dryer. It is sort of like making yogurt cheese..
When cottage cheese is ready, pull the panyhose out, give the cottage cheese a tight squeeze to get out any excess water and invert the cottage cheese into a medium size bowl. Add crab, green onion, sesame oil, and salt and pepper. Blend with a hand mixxer or in a food processor until creamy. There may be clumps, but that is fine since it is the nauter of the cottage cheese. Remove 1/3 of the mixture and refrigerate. Set the remaining 2/3 aside.
Mix together Medifast egg and Medifast cream soup packets with the baking soda. Add water, a little at a time until mixture just comes together. Spray a large piece of foil with Pam and place drops of this mixture on them. I was able to get 16 tablespoon sized drops. using wet fingers, pat each drop into a little circle. Place in the oven on 350 for 5 minutes..
Take them out of the oven and place on a heatproff surface. Take the 2/3 cottage cheese mixture and place some on each circle. Place back in oven for about 20 minutes or until brown around the edges. Split them into two batches to eat over two meals..
I like to eat the remaing 1/3 of the cottage cheese mixture that I made with a tomato or with mushrooms, stuffing them and eating it that way..
In all this makes 2 Medifast meals and part of your l&g. All you need is a salad.
My roomate even tried this and said it was good..
Sound very good, I think I'll give that a try tomorrow!..
Oo this does sound SOOOO good. I love crab rangoons or use to that is. hehe..
Sounds like it might be worth all the hassel, I loved crab rangoon!!! Thanks for posting this, you creative minds save me every time!!..
Yeah, Terie, you and I just cheer them on from the sidelines..
Oh yum that is always my favorite.. When I was prego with my daughter we would go to an Asian buffet, they had the best crab ragoon and I would pile my plate and eat only those (with a cup of egg flower soup). I will have to see about swapping a packet of some thing for a packet of eggs with my hubby's ex wife so I can make it......
This is definitely going on my list of things to try! I love crab rangoon too..
Word to the wise though about fake crab. Definitely not MF-friendly. DH eats it all the time so we have that in the house and I thought I could maybe swipe it and use it for this recipe. No way! It's got tons of carbs! Who'da thunk it? I'll have to go buy the real thing to try this recipe, but it sure sounds worth it..
Thanks for posting it!..
I love crab rangoon too. Pre-MF I used to eat them when we went to the chinese buffet in our area, and boy were they scrumptious..
I can't wait till I hit goal and transition into maintenance so I can have a few in moderation every couple of months or so. Before I didn't know the meaning of moderation. I was like I want all of them and I'd always eat way to much. I am so glad I don't have that attitude anymore and have a healthier outlook on eating..
This recipe is a really good idea. You are very creative to come up with this! I would have never dreamed it!.
