2 stalks celery, chopped fine
1/2 tbsp grated onion
1/2 cup bread crumbs

1/8 lb butter
1 tbls flour
1 cup milk
1/4 tsp salt
Tobasco to taste
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp dry mustard

Mix crab meat, celery, onion and bread crumbs. Make white sauce then combine with crab mixture. Fill shells. Dot with butter and sprinkle with bread crumbs.
Brown in a warm oven.
Serves 4 or 5

In 1954 prices for the Dinner Bell Inn were considered moderate and ranged from 85 cents to $3.
