Chop all vegetable seasonings. Sauté in butter. Add liquid seasonings. Stir in flour. Slowly add Milk. Add ½ of this hot creamed sauce to the beaten egg. Mix this with the remaining ½ of cream sauce. Add crabmeat, salt and pepper. Use more milk to correct consistency if necessary. Makes 8 large or 3 dozen cocktail patties. Just before serving, brown in oven till crisp and filling is hot. Variations include using crayfish, shrimp or chicken.  Can have a basic white sauce or mushroom sauce spooned on top just before baking.

The patty shells are also known as vol-au-vent, and are used in many common forms of canapé.
