So today I had leftover Krab (fake crabmeat sticks) from my sushi making adventures this past weekend that I wanted to use up. So I developed this recipe for Seafood Egg bites, similar to my Breakfast Egg Bite recipe posted last month. This version is really tasty and so easy to make because I used some biscuit mix for the binder instead of crescent roll dough as a crust. It sort of helps it all to hold together well and gives it some body.
You could also make some tasty variations of this by substituting different proteins, veggies and cheeses. You should always feel free to add your own personal favorite ingredients to make a recipe your own. Try smoked salmon for the crab. Or totally change it up by using cooked sausage and cheddar cheese. Do a veggie version and add peppers to your onions and add chopped artichoke hearts to the final egg mixture.
Please let me know if you try this recipe and be sure to share other tasty variations.
