Best Cream of Crab SoupFrom rottman 5 years ago
How to make it
- Melt butter and blend in flour. Stir until smooth. Slowly stir in chicken broth. The mixture will visibly thicken and become gravy-like. Add pepper and simmer for 2 minutes. Add half and half and milk slowly. Slowly cook and stir until fully thickened. Add crab meat. Heat and serve.
- Comment: The original recipe called for 1 Tb parsley. It didn't suit my taste, so I've left it out to make a creamy soup that can be served in either a bowl or mug.
