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.

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
fresh chives (minced)
1/2 c
toasted pecans (chopped small)
3/4 lb
fresh lump crab meat (cooked)


36 slice
melted butter or margarine


fresh parsley


1Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
2Beat 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.
3Cut 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.
4Put 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).
5Place these on a ungreased baking pan. Brush the tops of these with melted butter.
6Bake for 25 minutes or until light golden brown.

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