This is a dish to experiment with. I've made this for years, and I've made some important changes to it that I find make the recipe better. First, cream of celery soup compliments the crab better than cream of chicken. I've tried cream of mushroom, chicken, etc, and nothing is as tasty in this as the cream of celery. Second, don't buy expensive finely cut hashbrowns. Buy less expensive shoestring potatoes or the cubed hash browns. They hold their texture better and absorb the butter and mixture and make a better casserole consistency, otherwise it ends up soupy, almost like mashed potatoes. When made right, this is a GREAT side dish, but you should experiment to see which way works best for you...


This is one of my all time favorites now. Definitely reduce the butter (I only did a half cup in the bottom of pan) and the cheese (I just used one 8 ounce package). I love seafood so this one was a hit. I even made it with smoked sausage kind of as a breakfast casserole. I like this one because I can prepare it the night before and leave it in the fridge and just put it in the oven when I get home from work.


The potatoes turned out really soupy! Way too much butter, and I love butter. Definetly will try again and use 3/4 cup butter.
