Blend of the Bayou

8 ounces cream cheese
1 stick butter (1/4 lb)
1 pound peeled shrimp
1 diced onion
1/2 diced bell pepper
2 ribs celery
2 tablespoons butter
1 can Cream of Mushroom soup
1 can mushrooms (drained)
1 tablespoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon tabasco
1/2 teaspoon red pepper
1 pint crab meat
3/4 cup cooked rice
Sharp cheese (grated)
Cracker crumbs

Preheat oven: 350F. Melt cream cheese and butter in a double boiler or microwave. saute onion, bell pepper, celery and shrimp in 2 tablespoons butter. In a large mixing bowl add all other ingredients.

Pour into an 8 x 12 inch glass casserole dish.

Top with sharp grated cheese and then cracker crumbs (May be frozen here).

Bake at 350F for 15 to 20 minutes (or until bubbly).

Depending upon the size shrimp used, you may have too much for 1 dish so make a small casserole to give to a "shut-in" or an elderly friend.

Serve warm.

Serves: 8
