#GoonLife (Crab Rangoon Grilled Cheese)


If I were on death row, I would want my last meal to be:

  • an aged gouda and duck prosciutto
  • crab rangoon
  • sesame-encrusted ahi tuna, rare
  • my Oberyn Martell smashed potatoes
  • chocolate croissant (from France, not the American bullshit)

I know it doesn’t all match, but I’m a dead woman, I don’t give a fuck.

Those are the bestest foods ever and I want them all the time. Particularly the rangoons. But getting Chinese takeout isn’t always doable or advisable. The cost adds up and so does the calorie count.

What do you do if you just want the ‘goons without all the extras? You could go get wonton wrappers and heat a big ‘ole pot of oil and stuff and fold lots of little things… if you have all fucking day. Or you could just slather the filling on some delicious bread and fry it up in a skillet.

The #GoonLife grilled cheese is the fast and easy way to get your rangoon fix without missing a thing about the takeout version. I have to say, I might even like it better… but that’s just because I can put tons of cheese on it if I want.

Don’t murder anyone for crab rangoon, just make yourself a #GoonLife grilled cheese.

8 oz cream cheese, softened
4 oz crab meat
2 tbsp chives
1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 clove garlic
4 slices fontina
8 slices french bread
¼ cup sesame seeds
2-3 tbsp sesame oil
sweet and sour sauce (store-bought or homemade)

Chop up crab meat and chives. Fold into cream cheese with worcestershire sauce, soy sauce and garlic.

Spread onto four slices of the bread and top each one with a slice of fontina. Place the other four slices of bread on top of them. Butter both sides of the sandwiches and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Heat sesame oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Place sandwiches in the skillet and cook for 3-5 minutes per side or until golden brown and the fontina has melted.

Serve with sweet and sour sauce.

Fontina has an Ohio heart and Philly spunk. She loves giving you recipes for hearty food, pop-culture puns and a hell of a lot of craft beer. You can find her in the kitchen, at the bar, on Twitter or marathoning episodes of Shin Chan or Bob's Burgers online.
