Crab-Stuffed Deviled Eggs

For a little something special, I like to include this appealing appetizer in holiday buffets. Guests really go for the creamy crab filling with almonds and celery that add a fun crunch.

    Traditional deviled eggs have mustard and a yellow hue. These were void of both. But the flavors, once married and paired with the egg whites, were OUTSTANDING! I did not have crab, but I did have a can of chopped clams. I can only imagine how wonderful that would be. I'd even be up for trying other small cans of fish (sardines, smoked oysters, tuna, etc). Your mouth and guests will be happy!
