   Substitute 1 tin of crabmeat for salad shrimp if desired. You may obtain
   the lemon juice and required zest from the same fresh lemon.
   1. To make the croustades: cut 2-inch rounds from bread slices. Brush both
   sides of circles lightly with melted butter; press circles into tiny
   muffin cups. Make at 450F for 5 minutes
   2. Melt butter in medium microwave-safe casserole on High for 1 to1 1/2
   minutes. Stir in flour, then slowly whisk in milk. Microwave on Medium for
   2 to 3 minutes, whisking each minute, until hot and thick. Add cheese;
   stir until cheese melts. Stir in remaining ingredients except paprika.
   3. Spoon a small amount of mixture into each croustade. Sprinkle lightly
   with paprika. (Can be wrapped well and frozen at this point for up to 3
   months)
   4. Bake freshly made croustades at 400F for 5 to 8 minutes, or until brown
   and bubbly. Bake frozen croustades at 400F for 15 minutes.
   Quantity will vary from 3 to 4 dozen depending upon pan sizes and desired
   size.
