A classic seafood casserole from Nellie Reed in Owl's Head, ME -- one of Yankee's "Great New England Cooks" from 1978. This casserole is for a family, and it gives you a warm feeling in your throat after you've finished. To make it less expensive, substitute haddock for lobster. Looks as extravagantly wonderful as it tastes!
