Crabmeat Au Gratin

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Alskann

I got this recipe from a friend in my recipe club. It was such a hit with my family that I served it for company with rave reviews. My usually finicky son could not get enough of it. Everyone wanted the recipe and there were no leftovers.

This was very salty for some reason. Maybe I used salty clam juice or something. If I were to do it again, I'd not use Tony Cachere's but the ingredients in Tony Cachere's without that much (1 Tbsp) of salt. To make this more tolerable being that it was so salty, I mixed it in with some macaroni. Otherwise, a VERY good recipe!
