How to make it
- First prepare the pistolettes rolls; cut a hole into one end of the roll and take out the inside.
- In medium saucepan over medium heat melt the butter and sauté the onions, bell pepper, celery and garlic until onions have wilted.
- Add the seasonings along with the cans of cream of mushroom
- Add the Velveeta cheese and stir until completely melted.
- Add the crawfish/shrimp to the mixture.
- Note - you could chop the crawfish/shrimp 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. NOTE: IF THE MIXTURE IS TOO THICK YOU CAN ADD A LITTLE EVAPORATED MILK, TO THIN IT OUT SOME BUT YOU DONT WANT IT TOO THIN
- Add the parsley last (right before you place the filling in the roll)
- while warm, not hot, fill the pocket of the bun with the filling
- Stuffed Pistolettes may now be baked at 375 degrees F until golden brown about 20 minutes.
- If deep 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.
- If baking the rolls spread butter on the top before putting in the oven
- ANOTHER ALTERNATIVE TO STUFF IN THE PISTOLETTE'S
- BROWN GROUND CHUCK
- SAUTEE BELL PEPPER, GREEN ONIONS, ONIONS, CELERY
- MIX WITH CREAM OF MUSHROOM SOUP AND
- VELVETTA CHEESE
- MIX ALL THIS TOGETHER AND FILL IN THE PISTOLETTE'S
