Crab Casserole

"From "Cooking with Love" submitted by Lisa Hughes who said this is an easy recipe which can be frozen if made with fresh crab. Sounds so good-didn't want to lose it and I have some crabmeat calling my name!"

  1. This is very similar to a recipe my father gave me and I made last night. Ingrediants are the same, with the exception of 4X the sherry, but I thought mine needed more anyway, so no argument there. I added 1 c. shredded cheddar to the white sauce before folding in the crab, then sprinkled more on top while baking. Also sprinkled paprika just for looks. Thanks for saving me the effort of posting it. Can be served as a hearty dip with toasted baguette slices.


<p>I've collected recipes since I was a teen. After all these years I'm trying to get all my index cards and clippings, that still sound interesting to me, posted here so that I can find them and eventually make them! <br /> <br />I've posted some of my Mom's recipes. I regret not having paid more attention to my Grandmothers' cooking. They made some dishes that I miss and there were/are no recipes for them. <br /> <br />I have a wonderful DH and 2 wonderful sons. They are thrilled that I found this site since they directly benefit from it! Before finding 'Zaar, I was less of a cook and more of a recipe collector but now I try many more things and we're having more fun in the kitchen (at least I am)! <br /> <br />Thanks for all your ratings, comments and help in the forums AND for posting so many great recipes. You've enhanced my cooking skills and expanded my horizons! I've learned so much. <br /> <br />For fun, I also like to read fiction, travel, see movies and shows, shop (and I love to browse thrift shops and rummage/garage sales for cookbooks, etc.). <br /> <br />The discovery of a new dish does more for the happiness of mankind than the discovery of a new star Brillat-Savarin</p>
