New Brunswick Lobster Casserole

Rated as 4.24 out of 5 Stars

"Our lobster season starts May 1 in the Chaleur Bay region of New Brunswick, Canada. I know it seems a shame to put lobster meat in a casserole, but this is so delicious, and because we often buy 10-20 lbs of fresh lobster right from the fishermen, we often have some left over after we have our first feed. I often use it for a special luncheon with a salad or as an entree with a buffet dinner. I am always asked for the recipe."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a casserole dish.
  2. Melt 3 tablespoons of butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in flour, mustard powder, salt, and pepper until smooth. Pour in the milk and cream, bring to a simmer, and cook until thickened and smooth, stirring constantly. Add the mushrooms and cheese, stir until the cheese has melted. Fold in the diced lobster meat and the bread cubes.
  3. Pour into prepared casserole dish. Mix the bread crumbs with the remaining 1 tablespoon of melted butter to moisten. Sprinkle the crumbs over the casserole.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until the crumbs have browned, and the casserole is hot; about 30 minutes.

Lobster is so darned expensive here in southern Ontario I couldn't bring myself to use it in a casserole. Instead I substituted with only slightly less expensive crab. Here's a hint: stay away...
