what you'll need
  

  • 1 baguette 24"–26" long
  • 2 12 oz packages imitation crab
  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 2 large celery stalks finely diced
  • 1/2 zest of lemon
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice fresh
  • 1/2 tsp seasoned salt
  • 2 tsp dill or 1 dried dill
  • 2 green onions finely chopped
  • 2-3 Tbsp mayonnaise

let's do it
 

  • Cut baguette into approximately 6" lengths then use a long, thin knife to hollow out the interior of each piece. Leave a ½" wall all the way around the interior of the bread, removing only the very center. Set the bread aside.
  • In a medium-sized mixing bowl, add imitation crab, breaking the chunks into very small pieces with a fork. Add cream cheese, celery, lemon zest, lemon juice, seasoned salt, dill and green onion. Mix to combine, making sure cream cheese is evenly incorporated.
  • Add only as much mayonnaise as needed to bind the mixture together. Then, pack the center of each piece of baguette with the crab filling. Don’t leave any space empty.
  • Wrap each piece of baguette with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 2 hours or until filling is firm. Remove from the fridge and slice into ½"-thick slices to serve as an appetizer or simply cut into desired portions to serve as a delicious lunch. Enjoy!

One Last Thing

Don’t throw away any leftover bread! Toast it, grind it up and use to make breadcrumbs.
