Tear up bread and soak in seasoned hot water (4 cups hot water, 1
teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon seafood seasoning, 1 teaspoons lemon and pepper
seasoning, 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning and 1 teaspoon oregano leaves).

Prepare crabmeat, 1 cup water, 1-1/2 teaspoons seafood seasoning and 1
teaspoon salt. Mix together in a small pot. Bring to a boil; lower fire and
simmer about 8 to 10 minutes until cooked.

I use a Super Oster Electric Pot 8-quart size. Heat cooking oil slowly
in pot. Saut”š onions, green peppers and celery in hot oil, on medium until
onions are clear or transparent. About 10 to 12 minutes.

To the above add shrimp, 1-1/2 teaspoons seafood seasoning, bay leaves, 1
teaspoon lemon and pepper seasoning, 1/2 teaspoon ltalian seasoning, garlic
and white parts of shallots. Stir well, cover and cook over medium heat
about 5 minutes.

Add cooked crabmeat, stir and simmer about 2 minutes.

Add seasoned soaked bread, parsley flakes and the green parts of
shallots; stir well, cover and simmer 3 to 4 minutes. Taste, you may have
to simmer a few more minutes. Adjust seasoning.

Add cheese; stir well. Add 1 cup Progresso bread crumbs; stir well. If
mixture is soupy, add more bread crumbs. Cover and simmer a few minutes to
set seasonings.

Remove bay leaves.

Place in dish or containers. May be frozen.

Better made the day before serving. Refrigerate overnight.

Next day, heat oven 350 degrees. Put in casserole dish. Cover with bread
crumbs and sprinkle with melted margarine or butter. Place in oven. Remove
from oven when bubbling starts. Cover with aluminum foil until ready to
serve. May be used as a casserole, dressing, or stuffing.

To freeze: Divide into aluminum containers or 1 quart (feeds 6 to 8).
Take from freezer, defrost in container (or put in another casserole) and
proceed as above. Serves about 50.
