Crab Stuffed Eggs

Not the prettiest as I was late getting dinner on and the natives were restless.
In another week or so there will be a lot of hard boiled eggs around this house due to Easter festivities.  Not that we don't usually have ahrd boiled eggs around because we often do.  Finding new and different ways to eat them is always fun.  This one is well worth any effort put forth.  They taste great.  You can use the canned variety of crab or fresh.  Obviously the fresher one will be amazing.  But the canned one is quite good too.

Crab Stuffed Eggs

6 hard-cooked eggs, peeled and halved
1 small can (6 oz) salad crab meat, rinsed and drained well
3 ½ tablespoons mayonnaise
1 ½ tablespoons very finely chopped celery
2 teaspoons dijon mustard
½ teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
½ teaspoon onion powder or more if you like
¼ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

Hard boil eggs.  I put my eggs in cold water and then bring it to a boil (I heard that prevents cracking).  Simmer three minutes and turn off the heat.  Let the water cool a little.  Generally I run a little cold water on it and peel and then run cold water again on it to rinse of any remaining shell bits.

Remove the yolks and place in a small bowl, mash with a fork. Add mayonnaise, celery, mustard, onion powder, Old Bay, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper and mix well. Fold in crab meat and mix thoroughly. Fill the empty egg white shells with the mixture.

Serve chilled or store covered in refrigerator until ready to serve.

Hi Lori. I was looking at this nice egg dish you linked in to Food on Friday and realised that I hadn't signed up to follow your blog. I am following it now and hope you will follow Carole's Chatter back. Cheers.
