How to Make Crab Meat Baked Appetizer


  1. Place crab meat in a small bowl that is heat proof- I used my Corelle bowl.
    In a measuring cup combine the egg, salad dressing or mayo, mustard, crushed crackers,seasoning,melted butter, garlic powder, lemon juice and Worcestershire sauce- beat with a fork then pour over the crab meat and mix well.
  2. Place in refrigerator. Heat oven to 375^. Place oven rack to middle of oven. Remove crab mixture and and bake for 15 minutes at this temperature; then raise oven rack to about 6 inches from broiler heat and broil for 5 to 6 minutes watching carefully. Remove from oven and sprinkle with paprika if desired and enjoy( this is just enough for a meal for me..LOL

    (if you are going to use the mushrooms fill them now with equal mixture on top of each.Place stuffed mushrooms in oven proof dish on middle rack of oven ; bake for 15 minutes;then raise rack to 6 inches from broiler and bake for 2 minutes)
  3. Serve with your favorite garnish, lemon slices and or cucumber slices. Makes 2 servings
