CRAB FONDUE

Recipe was given to me at a party (mid to late 70’s), modified it a little, and have passed it on to many people since. This has been our traditional family Christmas eve meal every year.

Instructions

  1. 1Cut Velveeta cheese into medium sized chunks and put into a large Crockpot (about 1 1/2 Qt.), set to high.
  2. 2Clean and thinly slice green onions (all), add to cheese, also add a couple pinches of white pepper. Stir into cheese.
  3. 3Add the 16 oz of Mayo. Mix well into other ingredients. Stir occasionally until cheese is melted.
  4. 4Drain crab meat into a fine mesh strainer, rinse under cold water. Empty crab meat into a bowl, sift through meat with your fingers to feel for bits of shell. Dump crab meat into melted cheese and stir in thoroughly.
  5. 5Add up to 1/4 cup of wine to fondue, stir in well. Check consistency, thin with a little milk if needed. Turn heat to low.
  6. 6Slice and halve baguette for dipping.
