“Decidedly rich, but a favorite with all our guests. Not only a breakfast dish but wonderful for brunch with salad and French bread.” — The Inn on Sea Street, Hyannis, Massachusetts


4 tablespoons butter
9 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 can (6 ounces) crabmeat, drained
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 tablespoon freshly chopped dill


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Put butter in a 12x8-inch glass baking dish and melt in the oven.

In a bowl, beat eggs, milk, salt, and pepper. Stir in crab and cream cheese. Pour over melted butter and sprinkle dill over the top.

Bake for 20 minutes, then lower heat to 300 degrees F and bake until firm in the center, about 10 minutes.
