Old London Crab Meat Seafood Appetizer Lobster Canape Recipe


Here’s one of my favorite appetizer ideas for lobster canape recipes made with Old London melba toast that we like to serve in New England.

With the first signs of spring evident in the budding trees, longer days, and warmer air, many of us begin planning summer vacations, trips to the beach, and looking forward to spending time outdoors.  These signs call to mind the start of bathing suit season, which can be daunting after a long, cold winter indoors, indulging in heavy foods and drink.

New England Lobster Canapes

Old London, the makers of delicious melba toast products, would like to help us fit in those summer clothes by encouraging us to include healthy, simple foods in our everyday menus.  Their famous snacks, made with all-natural ingredients and whole grains, prove a great way to satisfy mid-day hunger when paired with light treats like salsa or cheese.

Whether served on the terrace, Great Gatsby style, or poolside on your deck or patio, it’s magnificent in the summer, but can be served all year long too!

Lobster Canape

3 Tbl. butter
1/2 c. freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 egg yolk
3 Tbl. dry sherry
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1-1/2 c. cooked lobster meat or crab meat, finely chopped
48 1-1/2 inch to 2 in. rounds toasted bread, or Old London Melba Toast

1.  Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
2.  Cream the butter and cheese together.  Stir in the egg yolk, sherry, cayenne and Worcestershire.  Add the lobster and mix well.
3.  Place a spoonful of the lobster mixture on each toast round.  Place on a baking sheet and bake 5 minutes.

Yield:  4 dozen
