Lobster Thermidor Recipe

Lobster Thermidor originally from a French dish consisting of a creamy mixture of cooked lobster meat, egg yolks, stuffed into a lobster shell, and optionally served with an oven-browned cheese crust. Now, filipinos are fun of having this recipe with some additional ingredients. Enjoy cooking!
