Credited to Ruth Russell

This recipe was the Third Place Finisher in the 1973 Labor Day Crab Cooking Contest in Crisfield, MD.

  • Sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 Tbsp. flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 lb. lump crab meat
  • 1 tsp. prepared mustard
  • ¼ tsp. red pepper
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp. red and green peppers
  • 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 sliced hard cooked eggs

Melt the butter.

Stir in the flour and the milk and cook until thick.

Add the slightly beaten egg yolks, crab meat, and seasonings, and cook for 3 minutes.

Stir in the lemon juice, peppers, Worcestershire sauce and sliced eggs.

  • Puffs
  • ½ cup butter
