Lobster-Tarragon Toasts

Lobster-Tarragon Toasts

Lobster makes a luxurious addition to this Christmas feast. Since this dish is an hors d'oeuvre, you only need a small amount of expensive lobster to serve a group. Greek-style yogurt has a pleasant thickness that works for this recipe. Make the toasts and lobster mixture up to several hours ahead; store the toasts in an airtight bag at room temperature, and refrigerate the lobster.
