Made this and was disappointed. A great concept but I wonder if the author of the recipe has ever made it. I didn't understand the need to slow cook up to five hours on high for ingredients like cheese and crab. Maybe to reduce? I cooked for 3 hours and it was very dry. I can't imagine what it would have been like after cooking 5 hours on high. Way too many bread crumbs for such a small batch and when put under the broiler the cheese on top burned almost immediately and had to be scraped off. I was also suspect that the recipe called for no spices at all. Not even salt and pepper. And no lemon or lime juice with a seafood? I feel like I wasted a lot of time and expensive ingredients on this recipe.
