Meaty crab, dressed up with roasted peppers and a creamy dressing, is nestled under Swiss cheese in this creative take on a tuna melt.


  • 1 pound lump crabmeat, or two 6 oz cans crab meat, drained
  • 1/3 cup fat-free mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup roasted red peppers, water-packed, minced
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 tsp table salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 4 slice pumpernickel bread
  • 3 oz low-fat Swiss cheese, four 3/4 oz slices


  • Preheat broiler.
  • Combine crabmeat, mayonnaise, peppers, mustard, salt and pepper in a medium bowl; gently toss to combine. Divide crab mixture among bread slices, transfer to a baking sheet and top each with one slice of cheese.
  • Broil until cheese is golden and bubbly, about 1 to 2 minutes. Yields 1 piece per serving.
