I’m going to “Joi” with this recipe in a few days – I want to see if it’s just as good with Imitation Crabmeat, and I want to test out different cheeses. Don’t get me wrong, it’s amazing as is, I personally just prefer white cheeses. Even if it’s just White Cheddar, I want to see how it plays out.
You can take this recipe to a new, exotic level by serving a homemade Mexican Salsa Salad alongside the dish – or right on top of the casserole, itself. SImpy chop (finely) a great onion, the best looking tomato you can find, and some cilantro (coarsely). Combine and you’re in business.
