Crab Melt Toast
1 lb Louisiana crab claw meat
2 c shredded Swiss cheese
1 1⁄2 c mayonnaise
1⁄2 c green onions, chopped
1⁄2 tsp salt and pepper, or to taste.
1 large loaf French bread, cut into 6 pieces, then sliced in half (12 pieces total)
Combine crab meat with cheese, mayo, green onions, and salt and pepper.
Spread crab mixture over bread and bake open-faced at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes.
Broil for a few seconds, if you wish.
Alternative: If you would prefer to make dip: Combine ingredients into a shallow baking dish,
and bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes, until it starts to bubble. Serve with toasted
french bread or crostini.
