Shrimp Rabbit Sandwich


I assure you, no fluffy bunnies were harmed in the making of this dish. I am not certain why this is called a rabbit sandwich, or even a sandwich honestly. It may date from the era of pot lucks and cocktail parties that featured bacon wrapped livers (aka rumaki), lime jello creations and things served on mustard yellow platters. I also do not know what seasonings would be preferred here. I like my shrimp with a little red cocktail sauce but that doesn’t seem to mesh well with the melted cheese, here. Hmmm. I don’t even really know how to categorize this one. :-)

Shrimp Rabbit Sandwich

Heat one c whole shrimps and 1 tablespoon of finely chopped onion in 2 tablespoons of butter. Add one green pepper & 1 pimiento cut into thin strips. Place on slices of fresh toast and pour over them a sauce made with 1 pkg of Kraft Velveeta Cheese and 1/2 cup milk, cooked in a chafing dish or (double boiler) until cheese is melted. Season as preferred.

  1. I think you’re right about the era this dates from. Anything with pimiento and Velveeta has just GOT to be served next to a lime jello creation. I have shivers just picturing it.
