Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter in a saucepan, add the green pepper and onion, and cook over a low heat, stirring often, for 10 minutes.
Stir in the 2 mustards, salt, brandy, Cream Sauce, and 1 tablespoon of the bread crumbs.
Then add the crab meat.
Heat only for a few minutes, stirring gently and taking care not to break up the crab flakes.
Spoon into 6 individual baking shells or into a small baking dish that can go to the table.
Sprinkle on remaining bread crumbs and dot with remaining butter.
