• 6 oz Cream cheese
  • 3/4 c Mayonnaise
  • 1/2 lb Cheddar, sharp -- grated
  • 1 c Crab meat -- to 2 cups
  • 1 Onion, minced
  • 2 Egg -- hard-boiled, peeled, chopped fine
  • 1/4 ts Dry mustard
  • 1/2 ts Paprika
  • Pepper, black


Mix cream cheese with mayonnaise until smooth. Add rest of
ingredients, mix well, and refrigerate.

Serving suggestions: Serve as an appetizer with assorted crackers;
heat in a chafing dish as a hot spread; add a little milk and some
cooked rice or pasta to make a hot casserole; spread on buttered
toast rounds or English muffins and grill until piping hot; or use as
a filling in rolled filet of sole; baked with lemon and butter
brushed on the rolls. Substitute lobster for crab if desired.
