How to make Parmesan Crab Toast

Making the crab spread is very simple.

Start by putting an 8 ounce block of cream cheese, at room temperature, into a bowl along with 8 ounces of fresh crab.

Then add a cup of shredded parmesan and Old Bay seasoning.

Depending on spice preference, add 3/4 to 1 tablespoon.

No need for salt because the Old Bay has ya covered with all the seasoning needed.

Finally add a tablespoon of lemon juice, 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce, minced garlic, and fresh thyme.

Just mix it all together until combined.

Then slice a loaf of French bread into about 18 to 22 slices, this works best using a sharp, serrated bread knife.
