Cheese and Crabmeat casserole

  • Author: MearaMay


Original recipe of Mary Connors



16 slices of sandwich bread – crust removed and cubes

6 eggs

1 pint of milk

1 tsp salt

1/2 c margarine or oleo, melted

1 or 2 cans of packaged or frozen crabmeat

1/2 pound of Old English cheese grated medium fine


Divide into 3 piles – bread, cheese, and meat

Grease a 2 qt casserole. Make layers of bread, cheese and meat on repeat. 

Beat eggs and milk and salt, pour over the casserole. It may look like too much but it is not. Pour melted butter over, refrigerate overnight. Bake at 400 for 45-60 but put on a cookie sheet with hot water in case of spill over. Put foil over it if it looks done too soon. Serves 8-10
