Crab Mornay Recipe

"I sometimes have unexpected dinner guests, so I keep the ingredients for this easy microwave entree on hand," relates Beverly Callison of Memphis, Tennessee. Prepared pastry shells overflow with a creamy combination of canned crab and mushrooms. "I serve this with a packaged salad and receive lots of compliments on the meal."
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen puff pastry shells
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 jar (6 ounces) sliced mushrooms, drained

  • 3 cans (6 ounces each) crabmeat, drained, flaked and cartilage removed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/3 cup minced fresh parsley


  • 1. Bake pastry shells according to package directions. Meanwhile, place butter in a 2-qt. microwave-safe dish. Cover and microwave on high for 20-30 seconds or until melted. Add the mushrooms, onions and pimientos. Cover and cook on high for 2-3 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender.
