Crabacon II: The Return
Since Dungeness crab season is upon us once again, grab two of those fuckers and extract the meaty goodness. Start with the legs and move on to the bodies. If your tiny dinosaur brain can't figure it out and you need a tutorial, click here. Two crabs should yield about 2c of meat.
Make five strips of thick cut peppered bacon (not sweet cured, moron). Coarsely chop and set aside. In a large bowl, mix up 8oz softened cream cheese, 1/4c mayo, 4tbl white wine, 4tbl minced yellow onion, 1tbl prepared horseradish, and 1 minced clove of garlic. Gently fold in the crab and bacon.
Press the mixture into ramekins as seen above and don't leave any air pockets. You can use whatever the fuck dish you want. It doesn't really matter as long as you don't spread it out on a 13x9, dumbass.
