Reviews for Bayou Country Seafood Casserole
"I think we might be the only ones to try this that didn't really care too much for it. I can't quite put my finger on it, but this just didn't impress us. It looks like a lot of other folks have loved this recipe, so don't let my one "meh" review scare you away. It was edible...just didn't suit our tastes."
"I made a few alterations and doubled the recipe, it was a hit! I omitted the bread cubes and added shredded cheddar towards the end of baking. I used imitation crab and shrimp, another time shrimp & scallops all was very good."
"My family says this recipe is a keeper. I used all shrimp since that is our favorite sea food and it was delicious."
"The family loved this. I used lobster, crab, and shrimp. Next time I will leave out the bread, it doesn't need it."
"Fabulous! i doubled recipe for thanksgiving dinner and took KarenML's suggestion, 2lbs shrimp and 1lb scallops and omitted crab. used ritz cracker topping. the dish received rave reviews from my family. my niece said it tastes like the Outer Banks Sampler at Red Lobster. Highly Recommend this one!"
"This is an awesome recipe! I absolutely loved it and so did everyone who ate some. I will definitely make this again and again!"
"OMG this was sooooo good! I made this for my sister's birthday and I DOUBLED it, we love leftovers. I used two pounds of shrimp and a pound of bay scallops and no crab meat. I also cooked extra rice which I added after adding all the other ingredients."
"Excellent!On my second attempt, I added about one-half pound browned andouille sausage. It was even better if that's possible!"
"YUM! copying and savingThanks debhaase for your remarks on the ingredients....marking on my printed copy Gina"
"use 1 pint of half and half instead of 3/4calso, use crushed ritz crackers instead of bread crumbs for topping"
