It was great but heavy. I used asparagus - big chunky asparagus. They held up well. I also covered it with tin foil for the first 1/2 hour to keep it moist and help it to puff up. Read More

I can't imagine eating this or breakfast but it makes a great brunch dish. I used sweet onion finely diced in place of the green onions because that is what I had on hand. The dish looked a bit bland to me so I sprinkled a bit of sweet paprika over the top before baking. In the future I will add celery seed cayenne or possibly Old Bay because it is rather tame although rich. Thanks for a new way to use crabmeat. 5/19/13 Update: After refrigerating leftovers for 24 hrs after baking and finding them far more flavorful than yesterday I believe this should be assembled and refrigerated the day before it is to be used. I do wish I had done so. Read More

This is wonderful and so easy! I did substitute the milk with fat free half and half and added a little more crab.I also added a touch of Old Bay seasoning! Would make again and again good bye sausage strata! Read More

Used leftover fresh crab (didn't know that was possible) and it was Indescribably Delicious! I would make this dish for a very special brunch. Very elegant, scrumptious and easy to make. 10 Stars! I'd add a photo, but it was gone before I could take a picture! Read More

This was really good I substituted the Sherry for Apple Juice and added another can of crab. Next time I will increase it 4 cans. Read More
