Creamy hot crab dip tastes great on top of crunchy baguette slices. Serve it to guests in 30 minutes!
Updated Jan 18, 2010

Ingredients

  • 1/2 French baguette, cut into 1/4-inch slices (24 slices)
  • 1 tablespoon olive or vegetable oil
  • 1 can (6 ounces) crabmeat, well drained and flaked
  • 1 jar (2 ounces) diced pimientos, well drained
  • 2 ounces shredded Swiss cheese (1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup chive and onion cream cheese spread (from 8-ounce container)
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper sauce
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°. Place bread slices on large ungreased cookie sheet. Brush tops lightly with oil. Bake 3 to 5 minutes or until crisp and very light brown.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, mix remaining ingredients except chives in medium bowl. Spread 1 rounded table-spoonful crabmeat mixture on each bread slice.
  • 3
    Bake about 5 minutes or until filling is hot and cheese is melted. Sprinkle with chives.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    If an imported cheese shop is available to you, try a different firm and flavorful cheese such as manchego or Asiago in place of the Swiss cheese.
  • tip 2
    Baguettes vary in width. If your baguette is very narrow, you may need 30 slices to hold all of the filling.
  • tip 3
    The bread can be baked ahead, covered and stored at room temperature. Prepare the crab mixture the day before; cover and refrigerate. Assemble the appetizers just before baking them.
