September 2010 Meal #8: Crab Supreme

Meal #8: Crab Supreme was also from my casserole cookbook.  I ended up making double the recipe and it turned out too rich because of the mayonnaise it called for.  I would suggest that you stick to the actual measurements or else it becomes more like a dip rather than an actual dinner meal.

1 small onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup diced green pepper
3 tbsp. butter, divided
1 tbsp. all-purpose flour
3/4 cup milk
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 lb. fresh or canned crab meat, drained, flaked, and cartilage removed or 1 cup imitation crab meat, flaked
1/3 cup mayonnaise
Dash hot pepper sauce
2 tbsp. dry bread crumbs
Dask paprika

In a small saucepan saute onion and green pepper in 2 tbsp. butter.  Stir in flour until blended; gradually stir in the milk.  Add chili powder and salt.  Bring to boil; cook and stir for 1 minute or until thickened.  Remove from the hear; stir in the crab, mayonnaise, and hot pepper sauce.

Transfer to a greased shallow 1-qt. baking dish.  Melt the remaining butter and toss with bread crumbs.  Sprinkle over crab mixture.  Bake, uncovered at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until heated through.  Sprinkle with paprika.
