QUICK AND EASY CRAB MELTS





My Quick and Easy Crab Melts are seriously delicious and oh so versatile. They are great for a light lunch or brunch with some chips (crisps) or a salad, or you can cut them into small slices or squares and serve as appetizers, on a buffet, or at a cocktail party. Perfect for warmer days when you don’t want to have the stove going for too long, in cooler weather these Crab Melts are a tasty accompaniment to a warming bowl of soup.

Ingredients

  • ½ cup white crab meat
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped red pepper
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped celery
  • 2 tablespoons crème fraîche or sour cream (low fat is fine)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 slices of Monterey Jack cheese or Swiss cheese, or use Pepper Jack if you like a bit of spice
  • a four or five inch slice of baguette, long French bread, or ciabatta bread, cut carefully in half lengthwise


Instructions

  1. Put the French bread or ciabatta bread halves in the oven on a baking sheet at about 350°F (175°C) or under the broiler or grill for five minutes or until they are beginning to take on a bit of colour.
  2. Meanwhile, mix the crab meat with the mustard, red pepper, and celery.
