Creamy Seafood Bake

My husband loves Chinese food.  So, after a trip to a local Chinese Restaurant a few years back, I came up with this delicious re-creation of a yummy concoction offered on the buffet.  This creamy, cheesy, delicious seafood recipe is absolutely scrumptious!  And Creamy Seafood Bake is a delight to the taste buds!  With the silky texture of crab meat and the crisp/crunch of sauteed celery, this dish is hard to stop with just one serving!  Another bonus is that Creamy Seafood Bake can be put on the family table in short order!  Pair it with a crispy salad or steamed veggies, and you’ve got a delicious meal!  Be sure to give me a shout out to let me know what you think of this recipe!  Have an awesome week!  Lisa
