  1. 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  2. 1/2 cup chopped onion
  3. 1 cup chopped green bell pepper
  4. 2 garlic cloves, minced
  5. 4 Roma tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  6. 1/2 (16-ounce) package crawfish tails
  7. 2 cups shredded sharp white Cheddar cheese
  8. 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  9. 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  10. 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  11. 1 loaf French bread, halved lengthwise
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion, and cook until translucent, 4 to 6 minutes. Add bell pepper, and cook until softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Add garlic, and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Remove from heat, and transfer to a large bowl.
  3. To the same bowl, add tomatoes, crawfish, cheeses, salt, and pepper; combine well. Divide onion mixture between French bread halves. Bake in oven on a rimmed baking sheet until cheese is melted, 8 to 10 minutes. Slice into portions, and serve warm.

    I believe there should be a creamy base to act as a “glue” to tie all if the ingredients together and at the same time adding texture, depth, and flavor. Next time try adding 2 tablespoons of softened cream cheese and 1 cup of finely chopped fresh spinach.

      That’s a great idea, Vanisha, though the three cups of melted cheese does well at keeping the filling together. We’ll try this the next time we whip up a batch.
