This won’t help with buoyancy but put clarified butter in with the crab prior to sealing and let it bathe in the golden goodness. One upside, and there are many, is that now you have a crabby-butter sauce that can be used to prepare mashed potatoes to be used in your potato dip.

If you have an air fryer you’ll never want to put your potatoes near a pan or the oven to make them perfectly crisp and fluffy. I toss cut up russets (skin on!) with olive oil then season with salt, garlic powder, and paprika. Cook in the air fryer at 400 degrees for around 15 minutes, taking the basket out and Read more
