GATHER YE CHILDREN AROUND MOM IN BED . . . Mother's Day Recipes......Crabmeat Omelet, a favorite recipe of this mom's, from THE OUTER BANKS COOKBOOK: Recipe & Traditions from NC's Barrier Islands. . Add sliced fresh, local sliced strawberries to the plate, and I guarantee Mom will be happy!
4 tablespoons butter, divided; 1/3 pound crabmeat (about 1 cup); sprinkle of Old Bay seasoning; 1 tablespoon chopped chives; 4 eggs; salt and pepper to taste
In a saute pan, melt 2 tablespoons butter. Add crabmeat and sprinkle with Old Bay and chives. Gently stir crabmeat until heated through, then place in a small bowl. In another small bowl, beat eggs together with a fork until creamy and frothy. Melt remaining butter in the same saute pan over medium high heat, and swirl to coat the bottom and sides of pan. Add eggs, and season with salt and pepper to taste. When mixture has become slightly cooked on the bottom, tilt pan and allow the moist eggs to run beneath the cooked eggs, or if you are skilled, flip the omelet over. Add crabmeat to the center, and fold over the two edges. Remove immediately. Divide omelet half, and slide onto warmed plates. Sprinkle with more Old Bay if desired. Two servings
