Bunch's Crab Casserole

Frances S. 1

"This is my grandmother's recipe - 'Bunch' is short for 'Honeybunch,' our pet name for her. It is always a huge hit and it can be constructed the night before if need be. Just allow a little extra cooking time since the dish will be cold from refrigeration."

  1. Place eggs in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil and immediately remove from heat. Cover and let eggs stand in hot water for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from hot water, cool, peel and chop.

  3. In a bowl, combine the chopped eggs, heavy cream, mayonnaise, onion, parsley, and sherry. Reserve 1/2 cup of the stuffing mix and add the rest to the egg mixture. Stir in the crabmeat.
  4. Pour the mixture into prepared baking dish and sprinkle the reserved stuffing on top. Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes or until bubbly and slightly browned on top.

I made this recipe for Christmas Eve dinner -- I must admit, it was the best crab casserole that I have ever had. I did use lump crab meat and would suggest that to anyone making this dish.

Excellent! I added a little shrimp to it also. A huge hit with everyone. Have used it cold on crackers as an appie, too!

This had way too much mayonaise for me & my husband. Had to throw all the leftovers away.

The 1/2 C sherry is too much. I like sherry but it overpowered everything. Perhaps cut it to 1/8C and go up from there.
