Crab Meat Appetizer | Lobster Canape Recipe |Seafood Roll


Here’s one of my favorite appetizer ideas for either crab meat or lobster canape recipes made with Old London melba toast that we like to serve in New England.

Lobster Spread Appetizer


With the first signs of spring evident in the budding trees, longer days, and warmer air, many of us begin planning summer vacations, trips to the beach, and looking forward to spending time outdoors.  These signs call to mind the start of bathing suit season, which can be daunting after a long, cold winter indoors, indulging in heavy foods and drink.

New England Lobster Appetizer 


Old London, the makers of delicious melba toast products, would like to help us fit in those summer clothes by encouraging us to include healthy, simple foods in our everyday menus.  Their famous snacks, made with all-natural ingredients and whole grains, prove a great way to satisfy mid-day hunger when paired with light treats like salsa or cheese.

Whether served on the terrace, Great Gatsby style, or poolside on your deck or patio, it’s magnificent in the summer, but can be served all year long too!
