Crab Mornay


This is a wonderful recipe. Great as an appetizer.


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 2 teaspoons white pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pint milk
  • 1 pound white crabmeat (I use imitation and it turns out fine)
  • 1 pound Monterey jack cheese, grated
  • 1 cup grated cheese (Cheddar, sharp, etc. whichever you prefer) for topping


  1. Melt butter. Add flour, pepper, and salt. Make a paste by adding milk slowly. Gradually stir in remaining milk. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly to make a thick white sauce.
  2. Into greased baking dish (I use a 3-quart dish) layer: 1 pound white crabmeat 1 pound grated Monterey jack cheese white sauce.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 to 30 minutes, depending on the size of baking dish. Top the last 5 minutes with more grated cheese.
