Broil these flavorful cheesy crabmeat appetizers flavored by mayonnaise and Worcestershire sauce topped upon French bread.
Updated December 6, 2010

Ingredients

  • 24 (3/4-inch) slices French bread baguette
  • 1 (5-oz.) jar sharp pasteurized process cheese spread
  • 1 tablespoon all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
  • 6 tablespoons margarine or butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 (6-oz.) can crabmeat, drained

Steps

  • 1
    Arrange bread slices in single layer on ungreased cookie sheet. Broil 4 to 6 inches from heat for 1 to 2 minutes or until lightly browned on 1 side. Remove from broiler. Turn slices over; cool completely.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, in medium bowl, combine all remaining ingredients except crabmeat; mix until well blended and smooth. Stir in crabmeat.
  • 3
    Spread mixture on untoasted sides of bread, covering completely. Leaving slices on cookie sheet, freeze at least 30 minutes or until firm.
  • 4
    Cut slices in half crosswise; separately slightly. Broil frozen appetizers 4 to 6 inches from heat for 3 to 4 minutes or until puffed, bubbly and lightly browned.

  • If these appetizers broil too quickly, they will still be cold in the center; if they broil too slowly, the filling melts rather than puffs and the appetizers don’t brown. Adjust the broiler rack as needed to get the optimum results.
  • Prepared from start to finish, these appetizers require only a short freezing time; however, they can be assembled up to one month ahead and stored in the freezer. Be sure to broil them while they are frozen.
  • Garnish the serving platter with fresh herbs and/or red bell pepper cutouts.
