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."

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.


WOW! Served this at a ladies' luncheon and it was a huge hit. "Easy" doesn't begin to describe the simplicity of this one. I used canned crab (claw meat) and Miracle Whip instead of plain mayo to bring out more of the crab mild flavor (which it did). Such an elegant dish--and my teen daughter ate the leftovers!


Can I give zero stars? Negative stars? This was so dissapointing and I hate to say it, but gross. This must be a hate it or love it kind of recipe. I relate to the woman who said she had to throw the leftovers away. We didn't even get that far. We couldn't even choke it down and I found myself making another meal. All my husband could taste was egg and mayonaise, and I decreased the amount of mayonaise. We couldn't taste the stuffing or the crab. There's another recipe for stuffed halibut that uses stuffing and crab, and it's amazing. I recommend doing a search and using it instead.
