Coastal Living


1/2 cup butter
1 cup thinly sliced green onions
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup half-and-half
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon dry sherry
1 pound fresh lump blue crabmeat
Crackers or toast points


Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add green onions and garlic, and sauté until tender. Stir in flour, and cook 1 minute. Gradually stir in half-and-half and next 3 ingredients.

Gently fold in crabmeat without breaking up lumps. Pour into a lightly greased 8- x 8-inch baking dish. Bake at 350° for 40 minutes or until lightly browned and bubbly. Serve with crackers or toast points.
