FAV!! Creamy Shrimp Crostini

I first learned about this at a Thanksgiving dinner at work many years ago. A fellow peer brought this in and I was immediately hooked. I'm making this today to have something to snack on over the weekend!ba

Now one thing I do differently that is not mentioned in the recipe below is this: I only toast one side of the baguette bread. Then on the non toasted side, I put a dollop of the mixture then toast. When the mixture gets light brown on top, it is good to go. It is good cold too!!! If you eat it cold, toast both sides. Enjoy!

Sounds good Sattie, minus the hot sauce. I can't do that stuff with my GERD.And I bet if you finely minced the shrimp, it would make a great dip.
Thanks!

Yea, I don't do the hot sauce either. The recipe that was emailed to me did not have the hot sauce. It taste great without it.

Great recipe sattie,
Sounds like it would work very well with crab meat also.
Hmmm, wonder if Uncle Bob would sub crawdads?
