Cooking Directions:

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
8 tablespoons butter - (1 stick)
1/2 cup minced onion
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup milk -- scalded
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 dash freshly-ground white pepper
1/4 cup sherry
12 ounces crab meat
1 cup finely-crumbled crackers
1/2 cup finely-grated cheddar cheese

Crumble crackers between waxed paper with a rolling pin. Reserve just
enough crumbs and cheese to top the casserole.

Melt 4 tablespoons of the butter in a large heavy skillet. Add onion and
sauté for about 5 minutes or until golden. Slowly add flour, stirring
constantly over low heat. When flour is blended, gradually add hot milk
(scalded) and blend with a whip. Continue stirring over low heat until
the sauce begins to thicken. Add salt, pepper, and sherry, and continue
stirring.

Mix crab meat, sauce, and the extra cracker crumbs and cheese. Place in a
lightly greased baking dish. Sprinkle reserved cracker crumbs and cheese
on the top of the casserole. Dot the top with the remaining 4 tablespoons
butter.

Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes or until the top is
golden brown.
