Poor Man's Lobster Rolls - Growing up in New England of course I love lobster rolls, or as more commonly pronounced ‘lobstah’ rolls. There seems to be some very strong opinions on what exactly a lobster roll consist of. I like them both ways. Mine are “poor man’s” because I don’t use lobster at all but instead imitation crab. Hey don’t hate, I’m in land-locked Oklahoma and lobster is very expensive here.
