    Debber's Note:

    Getting the kids ready and out the door in time for the traditional Lutheran church's Christmas Eve Children's Worship Service is made MUCH easier with this recipe on hand. Get things ready ahead of time, make a loaf of garlicky French bread, and before the little whipper-snappers have time to realize what's happened, you've eaten a healthy AND festive supper, AND are STILL out-the-door in time for church to hear the story and sing the carols of the Birth of Our Savior! Those lovely ladies at Gooseberry Patch take the credit for coming up with this one.

      This was delightful and relatively easy! I cooked some shrimp that I had, and bought a pound of lump crabmeat. I used cream of shrimp soup. I made everything exactly as posted, except I just sprinkled on some panko crumbs with cheddar cheese. It was tasty and delicious! Made for Please Review My Recipe Tag Game.
