My Favorite Crab-meat Gratin Recipe

My Favorite Crab-meat Gratin
Servings: 2

This really is a simple recipe and can be prepared in no time flat. Prep and cooking times are estimates depending on how quick ya can mince and any quirks your oven may have! It makes a great main meal for two (it's very, very rich) with a hearty salad and a loaf of good hot bread. This is also one of those recipes that you can play around with and add different ingredients that you may have on hand in your fridge; sometimes I like to throw in a little diced jalepeno pepper. I will say that, although expensive, fresh lump crab meat is really the best for this recipe and I have never tried it with frozen crab meat.
