Melt 1/4 cup of butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the chopped onion, bell pepper, green onions, and garlic. Cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes.
Pour in the evaporated milk and bring to a simmer. Stir in the processed cheese until melted. Reduce the heat to low, and keep the sauce warm.
Meanwhile, melt 1/2 teaspoon of butter in a large skillet over medium heat.
Add the crawfish tails and season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and Cajun seasoning. Cook and stir until the tails are hot and beginning to curl, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir the crawfish tails into the cheese sauce, and cook for 5 minutes.
Heat oil in a large skillet to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Cook the pistolette rolls in the hot oil until golden brown on all sides.
Remove to a paper towel lined plate to cool. Once cool enough to handle, cut a slit in one end of each roll, then use the handle of a spoon to create a pocket in the roll. Stuff the rolls with the crawfish mixture and serve immediately.
Recommended wine: Chardonnay, Gruener Veltliner, Muscadet, Pinot Grigio, Riesling, Sparkling Wine
Chardonnay, Gruener Veltliner, and Muscadet are great choices for Crawfish. Though different seafoods can certainly call for different wines, generally a crisp, light-bodied white wine or a sparkling white wine will do the trick and not drown out any subtle flavors. You could try Hindsight Wines Chardonnay. Reviewers quite like it with a 4.5 out of 5 star rating and a price of about 26 dollars per bottle.
