#3874 - Deviled Crab Meat

(by Shirley McNevich)

1 cup finely chopped celery
1 green bell pepper (finely chopped)
1 cup sliced green onions
1/2 cup chopped parsley
2lbs. lump crab meat
3 cups cracker crumbs
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. dry mustard
a dash of Tabasco sauce
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 stick butter (melted) + extra for drizzling

In a large bowl add chopped celery, chopped green bell peppers, sliced green onions and chopped parsley--mix well. Add lump crab meat, 2 1/2 cups of the cracker crumbs, salt, dry mustard, Tabasco sauce, heavy cream and melted butter--mix carefully so you don't break apart the crab meat. Spread the mixture into a greased casserole dish. Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup cracker crumbs over the top. Drizzle a little extra melted butter over the cracker crumbs. Bake at 350 degrees 25-30 minutes or until browned and bubbling. Serve as a side dish, or serve as a dip with good quality crackers.
