My dad used to make this recipe when I was a child. It was the only way I would eat seafood. Now that I've become a seafood lover, I really enjoy this one even more! Good for special occasions since it has to be chilled overnight.

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, stir together the crabmeat and tuna. Place a layer of bread cubes in the bottom of a 1 1/2 quart casserole dish. Cover with a layer of the crab and tuna, then a layer of cheese and a sprinkle of parsley. Repeat layers 2 more times ending with cheese and parsley on top.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, butter, mustard powder and onion. Pour over the layers in the dish. Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours, or overnight.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Let the dish come to room temperature while the oven preheats.
  4. Bake uncovered for 1 hour and 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until puffed and golden.

This is a great recipe. I also grew up being served this dish. For a nice change around, we often used canned salmon and small fresh shrimp. This dish, a green salad and bottle of white wine make a very nice romantic dinner for two as well.

This is a very good idea and it tasted pretty good, but not great. I would, however, make it again and try adding different things to it. It was also very heavy and filling and fed 6 people (3 adults and 3 picky children who ate it as well). The only thing I really changed was to make 2 layers and found that that was plenty, and used Gouda cheese instead of muenster. I'll definitely try it with other fishes/meats as well!

This is very good, but not great. Maybe I should've used fresh parsley. I can see this being a great, economical seafood choice on a party buffet table.
