Seafood Potpies Recipe

You'll really like this recipe if you favor crab and shrimp. It's an old family favorite, and it tastes gourmet even though it's so easy to make. All my friends love it! —Carol Hickey Lake St. Louis, Missouri

"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."
