Ingredients

Endive Slaw:
Hand Pies:
Comeback Sauce:

Directions

For the endive slaw: In a bowl, mix together the endive, onion, chives, parsley, vinegar, olive oil and honey. Add salt and pepper to taste. Marinate at room temperature for 15 minutes.

For the hand pies: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Prepare a grill for medium heat.

Oil and grill the corn, turning often, until golden brown. Let cool, then cut the kernels from the cob.

Heat the butter and oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions, peppers, celery and greens onions and cook until translucent. Let cool.

Add the crabmeat, corn kernels, parsley, breadcrumbs, cayenne, crab boil seasoning and lemon juice. Add salt and pepper to taste and fold in the creme fraiche.

Lay out the crescent rolls on a work surface. Top each with a couple tablespoons of the filling, then fold into triangles and seal tightly. Brush with egg wash. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until golden brown.

For the comeback sauce: Combine the mayonnaise, ketchup, cornichons, lemon juice, hot sauce, Worcestershire and salt and pepper taste in a bowl. Mix well. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. (Makes 2 cups.)

To serve, spoon some comeback sauce onto plates. Slice the hand pies in half and arrange on top of the sauce. Top with slaw.
