Pumpkin Cheeseball with Dungeness Crab
These recipes were created from our passion for seafood, using Premier Catch’s tasty, wild-caught Dungeness Crab. We love to share them with our friends and family. From our kitchen to yours, here’s one of our favorites!
1 cup Dungeness Crab Meat
2 x 8oz block of cream cheese, softened to room temperature
2 tbsp ranch dressing
4 stalks diced green onions, white and green parts
1 bell pepper (save the stem!)
2+ cups shredded cheddar cheese
2 tsp garlic powder
crackers of choice
saran wrap and 5-6 thick rubber bands
In a large bowl, mix cream cheese, ranch dressing, green onions, diced bell pepper, and one cup of cheddar cheese until well combined.
Gently fold one cup of Dungeness crab meat in the cheese mixture.
Lay two large pieces of Saran Wrap on a cutting board and sprinkle a layer of cheddar cheese on top.
Add the crab mixture on the cheese and mold into a ball shape.
Sprinkle the rest of the cheddar cheese to cover the top and sides of the crab ball.
Use the Saran Wrap to wrap up the ball until completely covered.
Wrap it up into a tight ball.
Add four large rubber bands around the hall, criss-crossing to create the indents of a pumpkin.
Place the crab ball in the fridge for 2-8 hours to solidify the shape.
When ready, carefully cut the rubber bands and remove the Saran Wrap.
Add the bell pepper stem to the top.
Serve with crackers of your choice.
