Chef Shannah's Crab Balls

By: Chef Shannah Spencer

What do a football player and chef have in common? They share a love for good food, and in this case, they’re brother and sister. Chef Shannah Spencer is not only the sister of New England Patriots Defensive End Jarvis Green, but she’s the chef at his Capitol Sports Restaurant in Donaldsonville, La. Chef Shannah is a true down home, self taught chef, drawing inspiration from growing up in her grandmother, Georgina Caesar’s, kitchen. Chef Shannah and Jarvis have come up with some of their favorite football appetizer recipes, including these tasty crab balls.

Cooking Time: 15 min

Ingredients
  • 16 ounces can white crab meat
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onion
  • 1/2 cup dehydrated red and green bell pepper
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/2 cups half & half
  • 3 tablespoons seasonal all and garlic powder (mixed)
  • 1 can bread crumbs
Instructions
  1. Take quart size pot and melt butter
     
  2. Add green onion and dehydrated bell peppers to butter. Saute until almost golden brown.
