    This was different. I added some to it like a red bellpepper and tomatoes and added veriety of spices. Still turned out kind of mushy but it was good. I think this is a dish to play with. I think if you add more vegetables to it you can skip the milk and eggs all together or at least the milk because of natural juuces from veggies. For spices I used garlic powder, salt, pepper and italian seasoning. All in all if I make it again if I am going to use egg I will leave out the tomatoe.I really dont think I will make it again at least not my way. If I do make it I will have to do some configuring.

    This recipe was not good at all. When prepared as directed, you end up with a quiche layer on top of a layer of bland gooey crabby mush. So it was not a total waste, I had to break up the quiche layer into the crab layer, then add about 3 more cups of HARD breadcrumbs. To give it some flavor, I added Old Bay seasoning. I then had to put it back in the oven on 425° F for about 20 minutes. The final product ended up more suitable... a little too bready, but at least the liquid had been soaked up. Whoever enjoyed this casserole as is, I question your judgement.

    With the exception of using regular mushroom soup, I followed this recipe exactly. It was pretty tasty but the texture is mush. I want to experiment with this ... maybe add some chopped bell peppers (red & green), decrease the milk and cooking time. Sprinkle some seasoned bread crumbs on top (maybe seasoned with Old Bay type seasoning). A good start for a recipe, definitely easy, needs some tweaking for flavoring and texture.

    Excellent casserole. I used brown rice whole grain bread and soy milk. It was fantastic. I will make this again.
