Easy Creole Crabmeat Au Gratin Recipe

This Crabmeat au gratin recipe always reminds me of a little restaurant on Lake Pontchartrain in Metairie, Louisiana, just outside New Orleans.  It’s filled with tons of crab and a mixture of gooey cheeses. Served with warm crusty french bread and a simple green salad.

Serving suggestions (great if you end up with leftovers):

  • Serve over a baked potato.
  • Make a panini – top your favorite roll with crab mixture and a slice of brie and you have an awesome crab sandwich.
  • Top a Filet Mignon with crabmeat au gratin
