If you wake up crabby in the morning, you won't be for long... this goodie will happy-fy you. LOL

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This is a very different breakfast/brunch casserole and it's delicious! The lemon really helps the crab flavor shine through. It complements the tang and a bit of heat you get from the half and half, mayo, and cheese mixture. If you like crab, add this easy breakfast casserole to your next brunch menu.
