"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." — Frances S.

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.
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.
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!
I love crab in any form or fashion, but this was soooo awesome! I served it for a themed seafood brunch. Everyone really enjoyed this particular casserole. I made a few changes: I used one and a half pounds of crab, 1c mayo and 1/2c Miracle Whip, and tossed in some blanched asparagus spears which added to the color, texture and flavor of the dish. Thanks for a great one Francis.
This is good comfort food. Rich, satisfying and filling. Thanks to all of the other reviewers - I made adjustments according to your comments. I used only 1/4 c. of sherry and 1/2 c. of mayo and 1/2 c. of Miracle Whip. I baked it at 325 and sprinkled lemon juice over the top at the end. Broccoli almondine is a good accompianment.
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.
