"Our lobster season starts May 1 in the Chaleur Bay region of New Brunswick, Canada. I know it seems a shame to put lobster meat in a casserole, but this is so delicious, and because we often buy 10-20 lbs of fresh lobster right from the fishermen, we often have some left over after we have our first feed. I often use it for a special luncheon with a salad or as an entree with a buffet dinner. I am always asked for the recipe." — Judy Nic

shredded Swiss cheese
cooked lobster meat, diced
soft bread cubes
fine dry bread crumbs
A wonderful receipe! i made a few changes based on my comfort food likings,
instead of light cream, I used a cup of pet milk,(gives an amazing tang and much more depth to the cheese) also used gruyere rather than swiss. the results were perfect. i could have easily finished the entire batch myself! everyone LOVED IT!
Followed the recipe - it was very dry and bland. Something was missing, but I couldn't figure out what it was. It definitely needs more sauce and should be served over rice or pasta. Too bland for my taste.
Delicious! I cooked a bit of garlic in with the butter then added a splash of white wine. I recommend using at least half Evaporated Milk in place of the milk (ie half evap and half milk) it heps to prevent curdling. I also used dijon rather than dry mustard. So good with shrimp or white fish in place of lobster too!
Lobster is so darned expensive here in southern Ontario I couldn't bring myself to use it in a casserole. Instead I substituted with only slightly less expensive crab. Here's a hint: stay away from Philipps brand crab meat (product of Indonesia) - unless you like tiny pieces of shell in every bite. Other than that this is a great seafood casserole. Might try it using mixed seafoods (scallops, calamari, etc.).
The entire family loved this dish. Lobster is hard to find here so I used 5 frozen lobster tails, cooked (yielded about 3 1/2 cups meat). Expensive but it was a special event and worth the costs.
Delicious. I made this as a side dish for Thanksgiving dinner today. Rave reviews. Next time I might add garlic though.
Made this Recipe and got excellant comments on it!!!
