How to make it
- Melt butter in medium saute pan over medium heat.
- Add shallots and cook, stirring often, until shallots are dark brown and butter is nutty brown. You are not looking for a burned outcome: shallots and butter will be dark, but their taste should not be burnt See Photo
- Add garlic, wine, Old Bay salt and pepper. Lower heat and simmer to reduce by about half.
- Add cream and stir to combine and heat through.
- Remove from heat.
- Let cool slightly while mixing crab and slicing bread.
- In medium glass bowl, combine crab, roasted red pepper and parsley. See Photo
- Dip one cut side of each piece of bread into melted butter mixture then place, dry side down, on baking sheet or stone. See Photo
- Bake at 400 for about 10-12 minutes until bread is toasted around the edges. See Photo
- Meanwhile, add rest of the butter/shallot mixture to the crab mixture and mix well.
- Remove from oven and top each slice with an equal amount of the crab topping.
- Sprinkle each piece with grated Parmesan. See Photo
- Bake another 5 minutes or so just to warm and slightly melt cheese.

Delicious and rich! My shallots were black, but tasted fine! I accidentally left out the garlic :( but they were still good :) Thanks!
