Lobster Casserole

"Watching the popularity of a recipe grow is interesting pasttime. I remember when my Farmington roommate used this recipe for Maine lobster casserole for the very first time. She served it to the directors of the Central Maine Power Company for a luncheon at the annual meeting a long, long time ago. Since then the popularity of the casserole has grown and grown. After all, when you have a group of men telling about the goodness of a casserole, you can be certain it is. "

Don't you just love her little anecdotes?! They are so cute and fun to read. Maybe you even have a history with this recipe? Growing up we always cooked and ate lobster one way. In the shell. It has been fun for me to experiment with different recipes, especially classic Maine recipes. Are there any favorites out there? Or are you a traditionalist and prefer lobster steamed in the shell with butter? 

If you wanted to try something new and different this casserole was not a difficult one to make in the least and I can see why it would have been a popular recipe. It simply contains cooked lobster meat, bread, seasonings and milk. It comes out of the oven bubbling and golden brown. We still have some left and are serving it here at the cafe so come in and give it a try.
