Belated Halloween “Tasty Tuesday”

We decided to do our Tasty Tuesday TODAY in honor of Halloween, and I’m afraid I’m “coloring outside of the lines” against everyone else, b/c today is my 15th wedding anniversary and I decided to go with a MAINE/seafood recipe b/c that’s where we spent our honeymoon.

I have a recipe for Lobster Casserole that works well with other seafoods – since lobster’s hard to come by in Wisconsin (at least on THIS working mom’s budget) I’ve experimented with shrimp, cod and haddock variations. My grandma’s rolling in her grave right now, but substitution can be fun…*cough cough*

LOBSTER (SEAFOOD) CASSEROLE

3 c. lobster (insert seafood alternative) meat

8 Tbls. butter

8 Tbls. flour

6 Tbls. sherry

10 slices bread

2 pints cream

2 Tbls. lemon juice

2 beaten eggs

1-1/2 tsp. dry mustard

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp. paprika

1 pkg. (sleeve) crushed Ritz crackers (for topping) – or cornflakes

Preheat oven to 325. In skillet melt 2 Tbls. butter, add meat & cook until just done. In large mixing bowl, combine REST of butter, flour, lemon juice, egg, mustard, parika, salt and HALF the cream. Add the meat & stir. Tear the bread into small pieces and add to mix. Add rest of cream slowly–as much as needed to give a medium thickness to “batter.” (You might not use it all) Lastly, add sherry. Pour into large casserole dish; top with crackers. Bake 30-40 minutes or until hot & bubbly and golden brown on top.
