- 225 grams (about 2 cups) shredded Mexican 4 cheese mix(availiable in any food market in the cheese section) shopping list
- 4-5 tbsp. mayo shopping list
- 2 garlic cloves, pressed through a garlic press shopping list
- salt and pepper to taste shopping list
- 20 black medium seedless olives, or use any of your favourite olive that is stuffed with pimento, blue cheese, etc. shopping list
- 10 walnut halves, sliced in half lengthwise to make 20 nut pieces shopping list
- 3 imitation crab meat sticks, or use cooked crab meat, if you like shopping list
How to make it
- Mix shredded cheese with 4-5 tbsp. mayo. Add pressed garlic, salt and pepper to taste and mix till well combined. It will have a dough-like consistency. *Note: you can reduce the amount of garlic, if don't like the strong garlicky taste.
- If using black seedless olives, make a slit in each one and stuff with a piece of walnut. If you choose to use any other stuffed olives (pimento, blue cheese, etc.), omit this step.
- In a food processor chop the crab sticks until finely chopped. Remove to a shallow plate.
- Take about a tbsp. of cheese mixture and flatten it in your hand like a pancake. Place a stuffed olive in the center. Bring the sides of the cheese mixture up and around the olive, making it into a ball. Use more cheese if needed.
- Roll the cheese ball in the crab mixture. *Note: if using real crab meat, season it first to taste. These are filling, so plan 2 per serving.
