Makes 30

Prep time 30 min.

Total 37 min.


baguette loaf (250-270g)

1pkg 200-270 g flaked imitation crab. (I bought reg. & put into chopper.)

½ tsp. grated lemon rind

1 tbsp. lemon juice

¼ c. light sour cream

2 tbsp. each chopped chives (or green onion) & parsley

salt & pepper

1 pkg. (250g) light spreadable cream cheese


Cut baguette into 30 - ½" slices.  Place on large baking sheet. Bake 425º (220C) for 5-7 minutes or until lightly browned and crisp. Cool.


Combine crab, lemon juice & rind, sour cream, chives, and parsley.  Add salt & pepper to taste.

Spread each slice with heaping teaspoon of cream cheese. Top with crab mixture.



Recipe calls for Clover Leaf crab delectables and Philadelphia cream cheese.  I did use the Philadelphia but not Cloverleaf.

Made topping day before and tastes better than when just made.

Also can't say that I used heaping tsp. on top and was still good.

Did this recipe twice this week and went over very well.
