  1. Soften butter so when you spread it, it doesn't tear the bread [2 seconds @ a time on high in your micro should do it (not melted)]. Lightly butter both sides of bread, stack in 2 stacks on wax paper. Do not butter heels. Trim the crust from stacks. Cut stacks into cubes and put in a very large bowl.
  2. Chop onion and add to bread.
  3. Dice eggs and add to bread. Mix well w/a large slotted folding spoon. Cover tightly, refrigerate over night.
  4. Mix, Mayo, Johnny salt, pepper, cleaned, dried and chopped celery and crab. Cover tightly, refrigerate overnight. About an hour before you are serving the salad combine the the mayo mix w/the bread mix.
