Ingredients
  • 8 ounces Neufchatel cheese or cream cheese, softened
  • 1 pound fresh crabmeat, picked over for shells
  • 4 tablespoons ketchup
  • 4 tablespoons prepared horseradish
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 baguette, sliced into 18 rounds and toasted
Directions
  • Combine the cream cheese and all but 1/2 cup of the crabmeat in a medium bowl. Mix until thoroughly combined. Roll into an 8-inch log and refrigerate until firmed up slightly, about 1 hour. Refrigerate the remaining 1/2 cup crabmeat until serving.

  • Meanwhile, combine the ketchup, horseradish, lemon juice, salt and some pepper in a medium bowl. Taste and adjust to your liking.

  • Place the log on a serving platter. Spoon some of the sauce over it, reserving the remaining sauce in a small bowl to serve on the side. Sprinkle the reserved 1/2 cup crabmeat on top and garnish with the chives. Rub the garlic onto one side of each slice of bread and arrange the bread on the serving platter.
