Grandmother's Deviled Crab

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by For JTs Grandma

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.
