Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In saucepan, combine chicken broth, vegetable oil, Worcestershire sauce, parsley, season salt, celery seed, red pepper, and tarragon.
  2. Bring to a boil, incorporate flour until blended.
  3. Once flour and ingredients are combined set aside to cool.
  4. While that is cooling beat eggs to a fluffy consistency.
  5. The reason for letting the flour mixture cool is so that it doesn't cook the eggs.
  6. Combine beaten eggs and flour mixture thoroughly.
  7. Incorporate crab meat. After everything is combined, drop 1 large tablespoon per serving onto ungreased cookie sheet, and bake at 425 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.

I had some leftover crab and made these up to try. Excellent crab munchies any time! Served them with lemon and tarter sauce. Yum!

These are wonderful little crab bite treats. I quartered the recipe (since I was serving for one) and got 7 heaping tsp sized balls. I splashed some fresh lemon juice over them and indulged.
