Mrs. Gray's Deviled Crab
  • 1 pound jumbo lump crab meat
  • 1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon black pepper
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon red pepper
  • very little or no salt
  • 1 tablespoon dry mustard, sifted between fingers so there are no lumps
  • 1/2 stick butter, melted
  • 1 egg, beaten
Pick meat, add seasonings and mix. Add beaten egg and melted butter. Mix thoroughly. Pack in shells and broil 8 to 10 minutes until very brown. Taste before packing meat in shells. If it tastes fairly hot when cold, it's properly seasoned. It get hotter as it cooks. Serves 6.
