Reviews for Seafood Potpies
"My husband loved this. I mixed the cheese in with the seafood and topped it with fried onion rings. This filling was so delicious that I wouldn't use it in a crust again. I would just bake it in a casserole dish and serve it over mixed greens. Don't be surprised at the price of a can of crab meat - worth it though for a different type of supper."
"This is a favorite of ours. The variety of seafood is great. Makes a nice dinner for two."
