I have made this several times during the summer. I find it best to eat on regular bread. The french bread is too hard to eat.

We thought it was tasty... The French bread was a little too crusty and difficult to eat, next time we'll make fresh white bread and use that instead.All in all, good flavor and a nice change of pace. Thanks for the recipe!

I add more crab than the recipe calls for and assemble a little differently. However, this is SUPER tasty! Even my daughter, who doesn't like seafood enjoys it! I add a pouch of real crab (claw meat works well) and a small bag of frozen salad-sized shrimp. Replacing half of the mayo with sour cream also makes the mixture creamier. I've found that hollowing out the bread and pre-cutting it into quarters is less messy than cutting afterward. I put all the filled bread quarters on a baking pan and cover the whole pan with foil. A recipe to make again. It rivals the lobster rolls that are served out East.

I made this but I used 2 whole wheat tortilas and it turned out great for lunch.
