When is the last time you enjoyed a great Crabmeat Newburg? Well, now’s the time to do so if you want to celebrate National Crabmeat Newburg Day, which is Sept. 25th. When I was selecting my food of the month, I wanted to go with something I’ve never made before. The fact that I love crabmeat was also a deciding factor. What I like about this easy recipe is that it works well as an appetizer served with toast or crackers or as a main meal over rice or noodles. It also reminds me of my Dad, who occasionally made a wonderful Seafood Newburg on New Year’s Eve. I think he would approve of my version, but I will probably add some shrimp next time to make mine more like his.
This dish is rich, creamy and oh, so, so satisfying. It’s great to serve at a party or potluck dinner since it’s so easy to put together. Try to find your crabmeat on sale if possible – this can definitely be a budget-stretcher otherwise, and you may want to save it for special occasions.
