ingredients

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 envelope (1 ounce size) dry Hollandaise sauce mix
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
4 cups half and half
1/4 cup butter
2 teaspoons Old Bay seasoning
1/4 teaspoon celery seeds
1 cup whipping cream
1 1/2 tablespoon cooking sherry
1 pound Maryland crab meat

directions

In medium bowl, blend flour, Hollandaise sauce mix, and dry mustard with half of the half-and-half. Melt butter over medium heat in a 4-quart saucepan.

Slowly add above mixture to melted butter, stirring constantly to ensure smooth consistency. As mixture begins to thicken, add remaining half-and-half, Old Bay seasoning, celery seeds, and whipping cream. Heat to simmer, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low, add crab meat and sherry. Stir gently until heated through, and serve. Top each bowl with freshly ground pepper to taste.

At 14 grams carbs per serving, this is hardly a low carb soup.

Recipe is missing something.

Can you elaborate more? Texture? Flavor?

This soup was FANTASTIC! The receipe was so easy and it tasted wonderful. I'm a big fan of cream of crab soup but this was better than any restaurant or seafood carry out soup I've ever tried. You owe it to yourself to make this soup!

Made this for a Thanksgiving potluck last year. Every body loved it. I've been told not to show up unless I'm making this soup again. Best cream of crab soup I have ever had by far!
