Tonight is one of Puddie’s favorite recipes from the FREEZE-quel: Crabby Cheese Soup.
Aunt Lou and I found this recipe in Gooseberry Patch’s 5 Ingredients or Less… Unfortunately for this recipe–in the end it needed 6 Ingredients (tsk, tsk) for our Goode taste buds… but lucky for us, we knew just what it was missin’ 😉
Add 1/2 cup (whipped) cream cheese to this and ya got some AWESOME Crabby Cheese Soup.
Ya might notice that the name is a little different. That was Aunt Lou’s doin’. She decided to quit smoking (Yay!–Go Lou!) the DAY OF our FREEZE-quel. So, when she insisted on changing the name to Crabby Cheese Soup…it seemed fitting and big sis was not gonna argue ;). BTW– It has been several weeks and Aunt Lou is still smoke-free 🙂
So, ya start with some crab (1lb)… or fake crab if you are on a budget 😉
Then you give Aunt Lou a knife and STAND BACK…
Or, she might get…um… crabby…
Then pop the top on 2 cans of Cheddar Cheese Soup.
And two cans Evaporated Milk
Melt 1/2 cup butter or margarine and dump it all in a pot.
Then sprinkle on 1 Tablespoon Old Bay. I heart Old Bay. It smells and tastes sooo good!
But, for some reason when I boil it in water, the steam takes my breath away… why is that? Anyone know?
Dump in your crab. (You’re seeing double here.)
Mix’er up and your done… BUT WAIT!!!
I heart whipped cream cheese…
This stuff was yummy! It was good as a soup and good with pasta. And, even despite my reservations at first, it freezes well.
Now, if you splurge for REAL crab, I bet it would be even better…
Think I could talk those Time Bandit boys into bringing me back some to Indiana?
