This is a FANTASTIC recipe that I developed many years ago. It began at first as Crabmeat Au Gratin & recently I decided to also add Shrimp, which greatly improved an already great dish. Also, instead of a mild chedder, I sometimes use the 4 or 6 blend of shredded cheese, either Kraft or Sargento.

Very tasty, but, somewhat dry. The dish had a consistency that more closely resembled the filling of stuffed crab. The Au Gratin dishes I experienced at Don's in Hammond, LA was the texture I was looking for. Although not what I expected, it was very good. The family loved it and I will make it again
