When my husband retired a few years ago, we took a road trip to Wells, Maine, all the way from Houston, Texas. It was a whopping 1,986 miles one way! We were blessed to get a really good deal on an end-of-the-season vacation home that belonged to his ex-boss. We got there just in time to see the beautiful fall colors and because it was the end of season, all the big crowds were gone.
One of the big attractions in Wells is the Maine Diner, which was featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. This is a very quaint, old-fashioned diner that serves up some of the best seafood Maine has to offer. We ate at the diner several times during our trip, and were able to sample several delicious lobster dishes and creamy chowders. One dish that stood out, which was featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, was Grandmother’s Lobster Pie. Are you picturing a pot pie filled with lobster, vegetables and a creamy sauce? Well don’t!!! This is very different. Picture a layer of lobster with a delicious buttery cracker mixture on top. Below is my version of this delicious dish!
Maine is now one of my most favorite vacation spots and I’m hoping we can get back up that way soon. I loved the rocky coastline, apple farms, quaint little New England towns, wildlife and, of course, the lobster!!
