Open-Face Crab and Artichoke Melt

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Hey Jude

I found this in the 3/2005 issue of Bon Appetit and I usually halve it for my small family. When I do that, I use a smaller jar of marinated artichokes and drain them well.

Make sure you have a sandwich for everyone because there will be fist fights over any shortages. 27* sandwich, Jude.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix first 5 ingredients and 1/2°C parsley in a large bowl to blend. Transfer crab mixture to 8x8x2-inch glass baking dish. You can prepare up to this point and cover and refrigerate for 6 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 400°. Bake crab mixture until bubbling and heated through, about 25 minutes.
  3. Preheat broiler. Place bread slices in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Divide hot crab mixture among bread slices, using about 1/2 cup each. Top with tomato slices, then Monterey Jack cheese slices. Broil sandwiches until cheese melts, watching carefully to avoid burning, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle with the 2 T. of parsley and serve hot.
