 I was supposed to post this recipe forever ago and kept forgetting but here it is:

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. crab meat, fresh or canned
  • 2 cans cream of mushroom soup
  • 2 cans cream of celery soup
  • 6 T. butter
  • 1 quart half and half
  • salt, pepper, and Old Bay seasoning to taste
  • 1 to 2 T. cornstarch

Combine all ingredients in a large pot. Heat and serve.

Note: I used 1 T. of cornstarch and the soup did get pretty thick. I also think the next time I try to make this I will use a can of cream of potato soup and 1 can cream of celery soup or just add potatoes. It is very creamy by itself.

Easy Crab Bisque

Ingredients:

  • 1 can cream of potato soup
  • 1 can cream of celery soup
  • 1 can cream of broccoli soup
  • 2 cans lump crab meat
  • 33 oz. half and half (light)
  • 1 tbs. Old Bay seasoning
  • 1/4-1/2 cup dry sherry wine (optional)
  • 1 dash of tobasco sauce

Directions:

  • Mix all ingredients together and cook on low for at least two hours.

*Note: this is the recipe as we received it. We have made it with just two cans of cream of celery soup because we couldn’t find cream of broccoli as well. And I think that the next time we make it we will add another can of cream of potato soup. We have also used can crab and shrimp just for something a little different. And we also used fat free half and half and it still tasted great. Quick, easy, and yummy! ❤ Kristen Neely

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons and 3/4 teaspoon mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon and 1-1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1-1/2 pounds tilapia fillets
  • * I also added a bit of garlic powder and paprika
  1. Preheat your oven’s broiler. Grease a broiling pan or line pan with aluminum foil.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the Parmesan cheese,  butter, mayonnaise and lemon juice. Season with dried basil, pepper,  onion powder and celery salt. Mix well and set aside.
  3. Arrange fillets in a single layer on the prepared  pan. Broil a few inches from the heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Flip the  fillets over and broil for a couple more minutes. Remove the fillets  from the oven and cover them with the Parmesan cheese mixture on the top  side. Broil for 2 more minutes or until the topping is browned and fish  flakes easily with a fork. Be careful not to over cook the fish.
