1 pound Lump or flake crabmeat, drained
1 small green bell pepper, finely chopped
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 cup finely chopped celery
4 hard-cooked eggs, chopped
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
3 tablespoons butter or margarine
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
8 slices Bread, toasted and crushed
1 cup mayonnaise


Combine first 7 ingredients in a large mixing bowl; mix well, and set aside.

Melt butter in a heavy saucepan over low heat; add flour and salt, stirring until smooth. Cook 1 minutes, stirring constantly. Gradually add 1 cup milk: cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is thickened and bubbly. Remove sauce from heat.

Spoon sauce into crabmeat mixture, mixing well. Add toast crumbs, reserving 1/4 cup; mix well. Stir in mayonnaise.
