Another of my grandma's recipes adapted from a 1956 NC How to Cook Crab recipe book. Another reason I rarely order crab off of any menu - these can't be beat. Sadly - these don't freeze well. These were stuffed into glass crabshells or cleaned crabshells.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine butter and 3/4 cup cracker crumbs over low heat, melting butter and coating crumbs. Set aside.
  2. Combine remaining ingredients. Put in cleaned crab shells or individual dishes.
  3. Top with butter/cracker crumbs.
  4. Bake on cookie sheet at 350 until browned. About 15 to 20 minutes, depending on thickness.
