DEVILED CRABS

One pint of crab meat; two hard boiled eggs, two tablespoonsful melted butter, three tablespoonsful vinegar, pepper, salt, and mustard to taste, one raw egg, well beaten. Drain the liquor from the crabs, cream the yolks of the eggs with the butter, add seasoning, then stir in the raw egg, then the chopped whites of the eggs and mix well with the crab meat. Wash the shells and fill them lightly, put grated bread crumbs over the top and pour over each two tablespoonsful of melted butter. Place in pan and bake until light brown.
