This crab casserole makes an excellent main dish and it is great with rice or French fries and a side vegetable. Broccoli, peas, asparagus, or green beans would be great with the dish.
The casserole can also be served as a hot dip with crackers or chips. You can keep it warm on a warming tray, or put the baking dish in the slow cooker and keep it on the warm or low setting.
1 pound crabmeat, well drained
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon mustard
1 teaspoon Old Bay, or similar seafood seasoning
1 teaspoon capers, optional
Ritz crackers, broken into crumbs, for garnish
