My family loves crab salad and deviled eggs, so I tried combining the two. The crab meat adds a lot of flavor. What a hit! —Kevon Shuler Chelsea, Michigan

"Great idea and very delicious. I have a small family so I cut the recipe in half. Added crab meat, mayo, mustard & Worcestershire sauce (and a splash of pickle juice) to food processor to get a very smooth texture for easy piping. Worked beautifully. Topped with Old Bay as suggested by Alice below, and sprinkled crushed Ritz crackers on top for a little crunch. Man-o-man...That's some good stuff!!!"

"Thanks Devon. I did a little variation to bring down the cost. Used albacore tuna drained and 1 tsp lemon juice and 1 tsp lemon zest. Yum!"

"If you really want to really make them decadent, crumble up some freshly cooked bacon and put some in the bottom of the egg before you pipe in the filling."

"I took LiRm advice and sprinkled the Old Bay seasoning on top. These eggs are fantastic. I usually do not steer away from my personal deviled egg recipes because my family always complains. But this recipes is a keeper. When making deviled eggs again I will probably have to make my personal recipe as well as this one. I did not used canned crab because I had some real crab pieces I had just recently purchased for another recipe and had frozen the leftover."
