I am not surprised that my kids instantly love this crab casserole. My mom gave me this recipe. She insisted that I should try it very soon. I am guilty of not giving this a try soon because I forget about it. One day when I was browsing through my stuff I saw this recipe. When I was making this crab casserole my kids even my husband rushed in the kitchen to see what was up. My kids were hesitant at first, but my husband digs straight in. His reaction was very funny! He liked it and asked our kids to grab each spoon and just try it. I called my mom and said that everyone enjoy this casserole. She just said to me, “I told you so!”.
