Old Bay Seasoning TM
1 (6 ounce) can
lump crabmeat, drained
Try adding the following ingredients to this recipe and you will have a 'keeper': increase mayo to 3/4 cup (use light mayo, of course), 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice, 1 1/2 tsps dijon mustard (instead of powder), 1/2 tsp black pepper, 1/8 tsp salt, 1/8 tsp red pepper (cayenne). Mix with yolks and crab and stuff eggs. Top eggs with a sprinkling of Old Bay or smoked paprika and snipped fresh chives, if desired.
A nice change from the usual, but I thought they were missing a little something. I think I’ll try again and experiment by adding a few more ingredients. (Definitely a little more mayo for a creamier consistency.) Thanks for the good recipe!
This is great on a low-carb diet! I added fresh ground pepper to the mix as well. I like my deviled eggs a bit more moist and tangy, I would also add just a bit more mayo. I had 3 halves for breakfast with a cup of coffee. The extra filling is wonderful stuffed in celery sticks for a snack.
Very good. Also goes well with a can of shrimp instead of the crab.
If you like crab, and you like deviled egges you will love this recipe. I made this for cook-out and now I have to have these when ever there is an event. Great food. (Had to double the recipe so that some would make it to the party)
The texture of the egg filling was not as creamy as my traditional recipe. Next time I may add another tablespoon of mayonaise and a little more Old Bay seasoning. A nice change of pace from traditional deviled eggs, though.
I made this yesterday to take to a party. I love the concept, but it just wasn't a good combination. I added extra crab, extra cayenne, extra paprika, but it just didn't fly. A few got eaten, but just a little embarrassing to take something to a get together that people eat only to be polite. Thankfully I took shrimp tray! Now that went with enthusiasm!!! Taking this one out of my recipe box.
Followed the recipe they were good but did not go fast as i expected. It seemed to be missing something.
