I made this to serve at my bridge group's Christmas Brunch. Very lovely and delicious. I used cheddar cheese instead of American. Easy to make and the ladies and I thought this deserved 5-stars. Great brunch casserole

This dish was superb!! It seemed very simple to me and did not take me long. When I stirred in the bread cubes, cheese, and crabmeat I also put in a little bit of red wine, not cooking wine, and after I baked it I poured just a little bit of red wine on it. This dish is also great with collards.
