I made this for our Christmas Eve dinner. It was out of this world! The stuffing was so good. I used three smaller (1 1/4 lb) lobsters, and added another 1/2 of everything in the recipe, dividing it up three ways. There were lots of smiles around the table that night! Thanks Inez - you did it again!!

I made this a little different, Instead of boiling the lobster in water, I steamed them in beer which gives a bit sweeter taste to the lobster. Chef #190370
