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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Bake in preheated oven until the crumbs have browned, and the casserole is hot; about 30 minutes.

A wonderful receipe! i made a few changes based on my comfort food likings, instead of light cream, I used a cup of pet milk,(gives an amazing tang and much more depth to the cheese) also used gruyere rather than swiss. the results were perfect. i could have easily finished the entire batch myself! everyone LOVED IT!

Followed the recipe - it was very dry and bland. Something was missing but I couldn't figure out what it was. It definitely needs more sauce and should be served over rice or pasta. Too bland for my taste. Read More

Delicious! I cooked a bit of garlic in with the butter then added a splash of white wine. I recommend using at least half Evaporated Milk in place of the milk (ie half evap and half milk) it heps to prevent curdling. I also used dijon rather than dry mustard. So good with shrimp or white fish in place of lobster too! Read More

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 from Philipps brand crab meat (product of Indonesia) - unless you like tiny pieces of shell in every bite. Other than that this is a great seafood casserole. Might try it using mixed seafoods (scallops, calamari, etc.). Read More

The entire family loved this dish. Lobster is hard to find here so I used 5 frozen lobster tails cooked (yielded about 3 1/2 cups meat). Expensive but it was a special event and worth the costs. Read More
