1/2 tsp. Pepper
1 each Egg - Large - Beaten
2 1/2 cups Saltine Crackers Crumbs - Divided
Butter as needed
Mix the crabmeat, corn, bell pepper, celery, onion, mayo, and mustards in a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Gently fold in the beaten egg and 1 1/2 cups of the cracker crumbs, taking care not to overwork the mixture.
