  • 2 kaiser rolls, split
  • 2 teaspoons butter, softened
  • 1 can (6 ounces) lump crabmeat, drained
  • 4 ounces Swiss cheese, cubed

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon seafood seasoning, optional
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika


  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Carefully hollow out each roll, leaving a 1/2-in. shell (save removed bread for another use). Spread inside of rolls with butter. In a large bowl, combine the crab, cheese, celery, mayonnaise, parsley, seafood seasoning if desired, and paprika; divide between rolls. Wrap each in foil and place on a baking sheet. Bake until cheese is melted, 15-20 minutes.
