This recipe was found online by a friend from work and it immediately became one of our favorites. The casserole is so creamy and perfectly flavored. It makes a very elegant presentation served in individual ramekins.

Made this last night. It was rich and delicious. The cayenne gave it a light kick but didn't overpower the recipe. Only changes I made was that I added scallops because I had them on hand. Also used dried parsley instead of fresh. Fresh would have been much better. Next time I would crush the croutons by hand as they came out too fine in the food processor and it could have used a bit of crunch. Definite keeper. I will be making this again. Thank you Dreamgoddess!
