  1. I’ve cooked this multiple times and always a hit. I’ve even sold a few to neighbors as I’ve recently started a small casserole service.

  2. We’re rice and seafood eaters, so this combo sounds delish. Do you think the cheddar could be skipped?

  3. Oh, hubbs would fancy that one for sure!
    I’m not not a shrimp fan, but it looks amazing :)
