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.

How to Make Crab In A Blanket !

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.
