  • 1 1/2 cups biscuit baking mix
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped green onions
  • 1/2 pound crab meat
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon liquid hot pepper seasoning
  • Vegetable oil for frying

Mustard Dip

  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice


  1. Puffs: Combine biscuit mix, cheese and green onion. Shred crab and add to cheese mixture.
  2. Combine egg, water, Worcestershire and hot pepper seasoning. Stir into crab mixture just until blended.
  3. Heat about 1 1/2 inches oil in a deep saucepan or electric frying pan to 375 degrees F. Fry 3 or 4 puffs at a time by dropping batter from a teaspoon into the hot oil and cook, turning as necessary, until golden brown on all sides, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Lift out with a slotted spoon; drain. Keep warm until all are fried, or cool, wrap and freeze.
  4. Mustard Dip: Combine all ingredients.
  5. Serve hot with Mustard Dip.
