Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 2-quart baking dish.

  • Melt butter in a medium pot over low heat. Sauté lobster meat in butter until it starts to change color. Do not cook too long or too fast, or lobster meat will toughen. Use a slotted spoon to remove lobster meat from the pan and set aside.

  • Stir flour, dry mustard, salt, and pepper into remaining butter in the pot. Gradually whisk in cream and milk. Cook, stirring constantly, until thickened, about 5 minutes.

  • Return lobster meat to the pot. Tear bread into small pieces and stir into lobster mixture. Pour into the prepared baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until bubbly and delicately browned, 20 to 25 minutes.
