Bruschetta was originally toasted bread, rubbed with garlic and drizzled with olive oil. This version is a delicious variation that can be served as a light meal or as appetizers.

1 can (120 g) Clover Leaf Chunk Crabmeat, drained
1 cup (250 mL) diced and seeded fresh tomatoes (1 large)
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tbsp (15 mL) olive oil
1 tsp (5 mL) lemon juice
1/4 cup (50 mL) torn fresh basil leaves (or 1 tbsp/15 mL dried basil)
1/2 cup (125 mL) shredded feta or mozzarella cheese


  1. Slice the bread in half lengthwise and broil until lightly browned.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix crabmeat, tomatoes, garlic, oil and lemon juice; stir in basil. Spread mixture over toasted bread; sprinkle with cheese.
  3. Broil 2-3 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  4. Makes 4-6 lunch servings or 16 appetizers.

  • Substitute 2 tbsp (30 mL) grated Parmesan cheese for feta. Prepare crab mixture a few hours ahead; then top bread and broil at serving time.
