  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, at room temperature, for the dish
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard, or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Coarse kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh tarragon
  • 2 tablespoons dry white wine
  • 1 poundlump crabmeat, picked over for cartilage
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • Crackers, for serving
  • 1 jalapeno, cored, 1/2 chopped and 1/2 sliced, for serving
  • Hot sauce, for serving
Directions
  • Position an oven rack 4 inches below the broiler element and heat the broiler. Butter a medium gratin dish.

  • Combine the cream cheese, mayonnaise, mustard and cayenne pepper in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Add the tarragon and wine and stir until smooth. Using a large spatula, fold in the crabmeat, taking care not to break the lumps. Taste and adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper.

  • Serve warm on crackers topped with both chopped and sliced jalapenos and hot sauce on the side.
