To make seafood crab casserole, toss 1 can of drained crab meat with 1 cup of soft bread crumbs, 6 diced hard-boiled eggs, 1 chopped onion, 1/4 cup of sliced stuffed green olives and 1/4 cup of chopped fresh parsley leaves, and fold in 1 cup of mayonnaise and 3/4 cup of half-and-half. Season the casserole with 3/4 teaspoon of salt and 1 pinch of pepper before spooning it into a casserole dish. Sprinkle the top with 1/2 cup of buttered soft bread crumbs, and bake the casserole at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 to 25 minutes.

For another recipe, layer a casserole dish with 8 ounces of lobster meat, 4 ounces of crabmeat and 4 ounces of sauteed mushrooms. Make a white sauce by cooking 1/4 cup of butter at medium-low heat, and then stirring in 1/4 cup of flour once the butter melts. Whisk in 2 cups of milk. Once the mixture thickens, add 2 tablespoons of dry white wine, 1/4 teaspoon of paprika, salt and pepper to taste, and 2 teaspoons each of chives and parsley. Pour the sauce over the seafood and mushrooms, and bake the casserole at 350 F for 20 minutes.
