  9. Whisk over low heat until the mixture is cream and slightly thickened, about 5 minutes.
  10. Stir in the green onion, then gently fold in the crabmeat to avoid breaking it up.

  12. Sprinkle ¼ cup panko over the top of each ramekin.
  13. Place on a rimmed baking sheet or in a baking pan and bake for 20 minutes, until the mixture is bubbly and the bread crumbs are golden brown; serve immediately.
