    SkinnyMinnie's Note:

    This is such a good dish. I would order this every time we went to Don's Seafood Hut in Lafayette....still do when I go home to visit. I have tried many recipes, and this is the closest I can come to theirs. This is a collaboration of many different recipes I have tried.

      This is a wonderful recipe, but the next time you're in Lafayette, you should try Guidry's Reef's Crabmeat Au Gratin. I have worked in both places, and I guarantee that you'll like their's better! It's to die for! :)

      This is an elegant dinner!! I made a few changes- I used half& half in place of the cream, added a finely chopped shallot, and sprinkled the tops with a bit more nutmeg. I also made this earlier in the day, and kept refridgerated, adjusting the baking time. Thank you for sharing, Minnie!!
