This is absolutely wonderful. I changed the recipe to smaller slices of French bread and spread the crab filling on the top. Heat and serve as appetizer or with a soup for lunch.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all ingredients with enough mayonnaise to make it moist.
  2. Scoop out the center of the French bread loaf and fill with the crab filling.
  3. Bake in 350F oven until the cheese melts.

Lovely and tasty. I have made it twice. the first time I put it on toast and grilld it. The second time I added some paprika to it which gave a bit of a bite. I used part baked rolls cut in half which cooked at the same time as the topping

I made these for New Years Eve for our get together, the comments were...GREAT, VERY GOOD, EXCELLENT! I sliced up the french bread and topped it with this, very easy and I got about 50 but I used the smaller french loaf. THANKS.

I tried this both ways that she suggested and I liked it better on individual slices of french bread. Very very good. Debbie
