  • 6 oz. crab meat, drained and flaked if canned
  • 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 1 tsp dry mustard

Puff Ingredients:

  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup flour
  • 4 eggs


Combine the first five ingredients and set aside.

PREHEAT oven to 400 degrees.

Combine water, butter and salt in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and add flour, stirring vigorously until mixture leaves sides of pan and forms a smooth ball. Remove from heat and cool slightly.

Beat in eggs, one at a time, with a wooden spoon until batter is smooth. Add crab mixture and stir well.

Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls onto baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes; reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake an additional 10 minutes. Freeze baked or raw. Or you may eat them up right there and then.
