Super Bear Claws

The Super Bowl is just around the corner... friends will be getting together for a little rivalry. So, who isn't looking for a good appetizer? Something that can be done ahead and eaten between commercials.

In super bowl tradition, how bout some 'bear' claws? Serve these claws with a spicy cocktail sauce like our favorite Baldheaded Danny's.

Crab Claws
2 pounds crab claws
1 egg
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
1 tsp seasoning salt
cayenne pepper to taste
Clean crab claws by rinsing and picking off broken pieces of shell. Combine buttermilk and egg in a large bowl. Place claws in milk mixture to soak. In a shallow bowl combine flour, cornmeal, and spices. Heat 1 inch of oil in a large frying pan. When oil is hot, dredge claws in flour mixture and place in the pan, fry until golden. Drain on paper towels.

So, for our superbowl party, now I have a 'Bear' appetizer... but I'm stumped on the 'Colts'!
Y'all help!

All I can think of is Colt 45 malt. What does that mean? Is it still around?? Is it beer?

I am also a huge fan of crab claws (well I was born in Pascagoula, Mississippi after-all). Those are a fabulous idea. Thanks for that idea.
