Clean crabs as needed. Place crabs in cool running water to rinse. Dry crabs, then gently lift up the “apron” on each crab and place two wedges of Swiss cheese inside. Dip each crab into beaten egg then transfer to a plate and season with thyme and celery salt. Place seasoned crab onto breadcrumbs and cover top of crabs with crumbs. Lay them side-by-side in a greased baking dish and sprinkle garlic chives evenly on top. Pour tomato sauce over all. Bake in a 350°F oven for 40 minutes. Serve plates with 2 crabs, each topped with a sprig of parsley and served with a salad on the side.
