Crab In A Blanket !

No! I'm not the crab in the blanket! I have crab filling in a "blanket"!

These are delightful to serve at brunches, parties or pot luck dinners. They are very easy to make, but look like you have been slaving.... tee hee!

*** you can also make other fillings to make a variety to set out.

Ingredients

FILLING

1 pkg
(8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
2 tsp
lemon juice
1/3 c
whipping cream
1/4 tsp
each: salt and pepper
2 clove
garlic (minced fine)
1/2 c
brick cheese (shredded)
1/3 c

toasted pecans (chopped small)
3/4 lb
fresh lump crab meat (cooked)

BLANKETS

GARNISH (OPTIONAL)

sprig(s)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
2
Beat together the cream cheese, lemon juice, whipping cream, salt, pepper and garlic with an electric mixer on medium speed for 3 minutes until smooth. Add the shredded cheese, chives and nut and mix for 1 minute. Stir in the crab meat. Set aside until needed.
3
Cut the crust off of the slices of bread (save the crusts to make bread crumbs for future use).

Using a rolling pin, roll out each slice of bread to about 1/8 inch thick.
4
Put about 1-1/2 Tablespoons of the crab filling on the diagonal across the bread. Overlap opposite corners of the bread at the center. Use a toothpick to hold in place (if needed).
5
Place these on a ungreased baking pan. Brush the tops of these with melted butter.
6
Bake for 25 minutes or until light golden brown.

*** You may choose to garnish with fresh parsley sprigs (optional). Serve right away.
