Crabmeat Cheesecake with Green Onion Sauce

Serves 4-6

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup grated parmesan
  • ½ cup bread crumbs
  • ¼ cup melted butter
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • ¼ cup chopped red onion
  • ¼ cup red bell peppers
  • ¼ cup yellow peppers
  • 1 teaspoon salt and fresh pepper
  • 1 lbs. cream cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup cream
  • ½ lbs. crab meat
  • ½ cup grated mozzarella

Method of Preparation:

Combine the parmesan, bread crumbs and butter. Blend and press the mixture into the bottom of a small springform pan.

Heat the oil in large skillet. Add the onions, yellow and red bell peppers and sauté for 2 minutes. Stir in salt and pepper. Sauté for 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat.

Beat the cream cheese with the eggs in a large bowl until thick and frothy (about 5 minutes). Beat in the cream, mozzarella, sautéed vegetables and crabmeat. Mix thoroughly until creamy.

Pour the filling over the crust in the springform pan and bake at 350°F until firm (50 minutes to 1 hour). Remove from the oven and allow to cool to room temperature before serving.
