mixture smooth and free of lumps. Cook, stirring over medium heat until
mixture comes to a boil and thickens. Mix in onion, Worcestershire sauce
and bread cubes. Cool.

Fold in mayonnaise, lemon juice, salt and pepper. In another pan, heat
butter or margarine until lightly browned. Add Crabmeat and toss lightly.
Combine with sauce mixture. Put mixture into individual shells or ramekins
(or greased 1-quart casserole). Sprinkle Paprika over top. Bake at 450
degrees until hot and bubbly and lightly browned on top, 10 to 15 minutes.
