1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon thyme
1/8 teaspoon oregano

Parsley flakes for topping
Paprika for sprinkling

Directions: Wash and disinfect cleaning and serving surfaces. Wash hands.

Remove shell from crabmeat. In a large bowl, mix together eggs, 1/2 cup

mayonnaise, Worcestershire sauce, salt, thyme, oregano, dry mustard, and

liquid hot pepper sauce. Gently mix into crabmeat. Coat a 2-quart casserole

lightly with mayonnaise and fill with crab mixture. (Nic used individual

ramekins.) Spread a thin layer of mayonnaise over top of crab mixture and

sprinkle with parsley and paprika. Top with thin green pepper and pimiento.

Bake at 350 degrees until mixture is hot and lightly browned, about 40

minutes. (You will need to adjust baking time if you use individual

casseroles.) Serves 8.
