Crab in a Cover
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. sour cream
  • 1/2 lb. crab meat
  • 1 1/2 tsp. Old Bay seasoning
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup + 1 Tbsp. bread crumbs
  • several slices bacon (halved)
  • Swiss cheese, sliced in thin strips
Preparation Instructions:
Crab Mixture:

Beat egg. Add seasonings to taste. Add sour cream and mix well. Toss in crab meat. Add breadcrumbs until texture is firm enough to form 1" balls. Prepare mixture into about 24 balls.


Wrap crab balls with a thin slice of Swiss cheese. In the opposite direction, wrap crab ball with 1/2 slice of bacon.

On low heat, fry crab balls until bacon appears fairly crisp. Serve warm.
