Crabby Potatoes Recipe

We have potatoes and crab festivals near our home. I combined the two ingredients into a recipe that gives potatoes a surprise taste.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 1-1/4 hours Bake: 30 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 large baking potatoes
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cans (6 ounces each) crabmeat, drained, flaked and cartilage removed
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese, optional

Directions

  • 1. Bake potatoes at 375° for 1 hour or until tender. Cool. Cut potatoes in half lengthwise. Scoop out the pulp and place in a bowl; set shells aside. Add butter to pulp and mash. Beat in milk, mayonnaise, salt and pepper until smooth. Fold in crab. Spoon into potato shells. Place in an ungreased 11-in. x 7-in. baking dish. Sprinkle with cheese if desired. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 30 minutes or until heated through. Yield: 6 servings.
