Jetta's Crab Casserole

This recipe has been passed down from a friend of my mother-in-law. She gave it to me 26 years ago. As she passed away many years ago, everyone fondly remembers her everytime the family serves this recipe. It is simply delicious. It feeds a big crowd, and it is an easier way of serving crabcakes for a buffet.
