The folks at Aramark sent over some game-day recipes from M&T Bank Stadium's Executive Chef Joe Bachman. There was one for Maryland crab cakes, another for pit beef sandwiches, but I thought you'd want to see the one for Maryland Crab Tots.
Headquartered in Philadelphia, Aramark is the exclusive food and beverage partner for M&T Bank Stadium.
Here's the recipe for Maryland Crab Tots from M&T Bank Stadium:
• 2 pounds tots (any supermarket brand will do) • 2 cups diced tomato • 1/2 cup chopped scallions • 2 cups shredded cheddar/Monterey Jack cheese • 1 pound lump crab meat • 1 batch crab dip (recipe below)
Preheat broiler. Follow instructions on package for preparation of potato tots. Place hot tots in large casserole dish. Drizzle crab dip over tots and top with cheese. Add diced tomato and crabmeat. Place under broiler and remove once cheese has melted. Sprinkle with scallions and serve.
