This Crab Casserole will make you feel just like you are on the coast. It's hearty and loaded with crab. It's great for special occasions or family dinners. There is also the fact that I love casseroles, because they make life so easy. It’s like a magic compilation all in one dish and it’s even better when you can freeze a few for days you don’t have time to cook.
This crab casserole recipe is one of my favorites, passed down to us from my husband's Aunt Laurie. Aunt Laurie has a house on Dauphin Island. It's located just off the coast of Alabama and it holds a special place in my heart because it's where my hubby proposed to me. This crab casserole recipe was given to Laurie by one of her neighbors and everyone in our family loves it.
When you live on the coast, you have access to the freshest seafood but not to worry any kind of crab from you local store will do. Just be sure to check through the crab for bits of shell before you put it into your recipe.
