prep 0:20       total 0:45


6 servings



1 lb. cooked lobster meat
3/4 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1 tbsp. pimento, chopped
1 tbsp. onion, grated
2 tbsp. celery, diced
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 cup whole milk
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup flour
4 tbsp. butter


Preheat your oven to 350°F. Butter or spray a 6 cup casserole dish.

In a sauce pan melt the butter over medium heat. Whisk in the flour and cook for about 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly to make sure that the flour does not brown. Remove from heat and slowly whisk in the cream and milk. Stir in the salt, pepper, celery, onion, pimento and Worcestershire sauce. Add 1/2 a cup of the cheese and the lobster meat and stir to blend.

Pour the mixture into the prepared casserole dish and top it off with the 1/4 cup of cheese that is left. Put it in the middle of the preheated oven until the cheese is lightly browned about 20 minutes.

This is one of the best ways to eat lobster other than just boiling it or doing them on the grill. On a cold winter night this and a glass of wine makes you forget about the shoveling that you did outside.
