I can eat half a platter of them by myself. My love of them has been a good-natured family joke for years. My 82 year old aunt always makes twice as many of them for holiday gatherings when she knows I'll be there.

They are a delicious! Another place that does deviled eggs with crab is Esquina. Very different presentation and flavor but super yummy too. Check out both places and compare!
