This app is pure retro comfort food, but we've lightened and updated these toasts by baking instead of frying them. The idea is to come up with a substantial nibble to pair with each wine—which together add up to dinner. This bite-size app is perfectly paired with a crisp, dry white or rosé. 

Serves 6

8 ounces shelled, deveined shrimp, patted dry and minced
2 tablespoons minced shallots
1 tablespoon chopped tarragon, plus sprigs for garnish
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 large egg white, beaten until frothy
6 slices rustic French- or Italian-style bread
About 1/2 cup (4 oz.) cream cheese, at room temperature
6 lemon wedges


Total: 20 Minutes

1. Preheat oven to broil. Combine shrimp, shallots, tarragon, mustard, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and egg white in a bowl, and mix gently.

2. Lay bread slices on a baking sheet and broil about 6 in. from heat until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Turn slices over, spread with cream cheese, and top with shrimp mixture. Broil just until shrimp mixture turns pink and begins to brown, about 6 minutes.

3. Serve hot, garnished with tarragon sprigs and lemon wedges.
