2 tbsp sweet pickle relish
2 tbsp prepared mustard
1 package (8 oz) imitation crabmeat, flaked
1 cup (4 oz) shredded Swiss cheese
 2 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
6 flour tortillas (6 inches), room temp

In a small bowl, combine the mayo, onion, relish and mustard.  Stir in the crab, cheese and bacon.  Spoon about 1/2 cup down the center of each tortilla; roll up tightly.

Tuna Cresent Ring

Talk about easy, this dish is a no-brainer when you don't have a lot of time.

1 tube (8 oz) refrigerated cresent rolls
1 can (12 oz) white water-packed solid tuna
1 cup frozen peas and carrots
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
1-1/2 tsp dried minced onion
1 tsp Italian seasoning

Unroll cresent dough and separate into triangles.  Place on an ungreased 12-in pizza pan (if you have one or use a large baking sheet), forming a ring with the pointed ends facing the outer edge of the pan and with the wide ends overlapping.  Lightly press the wide ends together.

In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients.  Spoon over the wide ends of ring.  Fold the points over filling and tuck under the wide ends (filling will be visible).

Bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown and filling is hot.
