If you are hosting this holiday season it is good to have a few recipes on hand that you can put together quickly so that you have more time to enjoy your guests.
This is an easy brunch dish that takes minutes to assemble yet looks like it took hours to prepare.
The ingredients can be varied, such as substituting the crab for smoked salmon or cooked baby shrimp.
This serves 4 to 6. The recipe can be doubled if you have a crowd.
Serve with a crisp green salad and warm baguette.
