Made this last night. Very good. Similar to crabcakes but with more body. Loved the olives in it.

I love this recipe with the olives, however it really seemed to work better as a crab "dip" rather than a casserole. I will definitely be keeping this recipe to make again in the future!

I made this yesterday, and liked it ok, but wished I had left the olives out of it. I like olives, but didn't like the taste they gave to this casserole.
