Hot Crab Sandwiches
  • 1 tablespoon chopped sweet pickle
  • 1 tablespoon chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon chopped celery
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • dash pepper
  • 1 pound jumbo lump crab meat
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 12 slices white bread
Combine pickle, onion, celery, mayonnaise, seasonings and crab meat. Combine egg, milk and salt. Dip one side of each slice of bread in egg mixture. Place bread in a heavy frying pan which contains about 1/8 inch of fat, hot but not smoking. Fry at moderate heat until brown on one side. Drain on absorbent paper. Spread plain side of 6 slices of bread with crab mixture; cover with remaining 6 slices of bread. Place on a well-greased cookie sheet, 15 1/2 x 12 inches. Heat in a moderate oven, 350 degrees for 5 to 8 minutes or until heated through. Serves 6.
Ice-cold beer or ale is a good partner for these sandwiches, or try an India pale ale for an interesting change of pace.
