Hot Crab Casserole


2 cups Imitation Crab, chopped
1 can cream of mushroom soup
2 celery ribs, finely chopped
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 Tbsp. dehydrated onions
1/2 tube butter-flavored crackers (crushed)
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup crushed potato chips
1/4 cup sliced almonds

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a large bowl combine crab, soup, celery, mayonnaise, onions, crackers and cheese.  Pour into a 2 qt. baking dish sprayed with non-stick spray.  Bake 20-25 minutes or until bubbly.  Sprinkle with crushed chips and almonds.  Bake another 10 minutes or until lightly browned.

Comments:  This is one I make frequently for my dear friend Dusty.  I've made this dish using real crab but the imitation actually tastes better and is a lot less expensive.  If you do decide to try this with real crab use about 1 cup or the crab will overpower all other flavors.  The crushed crackers added to the mix thickens as well as adds another flavor.  This dish is great to eat as a casserole or to serve as an appetizer with crackers.  I also make this using chicken and mushrooms.  See that recipe by going to Think With Your Taste Buds - Chicken.
