#CrockpotWednesday: Cream of Crab

We think Coach Shelby got a little help on this one:

1 lb. crab meat, picked of shells (here I used Claw Meat as it’s way easier on the wallet!), (or imitation crab)
1 green onion, finely diced
1 celery stalk, finely diced
1/2 stick butter
1/3 cup flour
8 oz. clam juice
1 cup light cream
1 cup 1% milk (*plus 2 cups 1% milk)
1 tsp. Old Bay
1/2 tsp. fresh chopped thyme

In heavy stock pot over medium heat, melt butter. Add green onion and celery. Saute up until soft, about 4-5 minutes. Add flour and whisk into a roux. Add clam juice, light cream and milk. Whisk until well mixed. Add Old Bay and chopped thyme. Whisk over heat until hot. Add crab meat and fold soup together. Salt and Pepper to taste. Serve hot.

(We decided that an upgrade to the recipe would be to add four strips of #victorybacon, making it “Hoosier Cream of Crab”)
