"I was looking for a recipe that was close to my mothers and finally found it. The only difference is she used real crabmeat, but I tried it with the imitation and it's still pretty good. Thanks"

"I've made this several times, with good results. It doesn't really take very long to assemble and you could easily use real crab. I always used a whole 8 oz package of the imitation crab (shredded style)."

"I used real crab in mine and it was delicious. Top it off with some hot sauce and it was perfect"

"I made this on Christmas morning. The red and green colors were very festive. I normally don't like to cook with the fake crab but my family and I really enjoyed it."

"This is such an awesome recipe!! I made it for my Sunday School, 2 - 9X13 pans, and only got to take home a 2"X2" square!!! One pan, I sauteed down portabello mushrooms with the onion and it added such a depth of flavor. The other, in addition to the swiss cheese, I put in monterey-cheddar shredded cheese, and both were absolutely delicious. Till this day (over a year later!), my Sunday School class members still talk about it. Guess it's time to make another one :)"

"It was delicious, but be sure to get a deep dish pie crust! I bought a regular crust and spilled the filling all over. dinner was delayed by nearly an hour, but it was definitely worth the wait."
