From a cook book I bought in James Town called Recipes from Old Virginia

This is really good but kind of strong flavored so maybe instead of the main dish serve as a side.

4 Tbs butter
4 Tbs flour
2 cups milk
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
dash of red pepper

Cook until thick and add 2 beaten eggs and 4 ounces sharp cheese in small cubes. Stir until cheese is melted.

2 eggs, beaten
1 cup bread crumbs
4 ounces sharp cheese
3/4 cup or small can crab meat
3/4 cup or small can shrimp

Add crab meat and shrimp. Pour into one large or 6 to 8 individual buttered casseroles. Top with buttered bread crumbs and grated cheese if desired. Bake at 450 until brown and hot through.
May be made ahead and refrigerated or frozen. In this case, add crumbs just before putting into oven and bake at 350.
