Tonight’s recipe is Crab Bisque. Truth be told this one was one of my FREEZE-O-RAMA recipes from my last cooking day, but it never made it to the freezer .
It was one of the first recipes I have tried from my new Taste of Home Freezer Pleasers and although it didn’t make it to the freezer, it was a pleaser and definitely an addition to the Goode Family Favorites
The actual recipe is above… but you know me… I heart my little alterations
You start by sauteing 1 chopped onion, 1 sliced celery rib and 2 banana peppers in 3 T butter… Psst… turn down your heat so you don’t brown quite as much as I did above
Add two cans cream corn
And two cans cream of potato soup
1 1/2 Cup Milk
1 1/2 Cups Half and Half
And now my little addition… 1/2 Cup of Sherry
And some (1 T) Old Bay baby!
Now back to your regularly scheduled seasonings…
2 Bay Leaves, 1 t thyme, 1/2 t garlic powder, 1/2 t White Pepper … I skipped the hot sauce cause we all know I am a weanie
Now mix’er up
Now grab three cans of crab meat… drain it, flake it and make sure to get any bits of cartilage outta there.
Call me Jessica Simpson, but I had no idea that crab meat came in a can…
Anyhoo, add the crabbiness to the soup, mix and heat through.
Yummy for the tummy! So warm, rich and comforting… and the sherry and Old Bay were perfect additions!
Now, while this didn’t quite make it to the freezer, several things did…
7 double portions of my Garden Chili (recipe to come!!!)
6 portions of Texas Ranch Soup
10 Banana Nut Muffins (from Fiber One Box Mix)
12 double portions of Scratchy Peachy Oatmeal Pancakes
2 family portions of Herbed Turkey and Rice Pilaf
3 family portions of Turkey Tetrazzini
6 portions of Alabama Turkey Noodle Soup
13 family portions of Seasoned Ground Beef
I didn’t quite get to everything on my list, but my freezer is full and I am a happy camper
Do you have a favorite soup?
Do you chill, baby? What is your favorite thing to freeze?
Pssst… Have you voted on my Goode Gooseberry Project decision? I will be using a lot of those Gooseberry Patch recipes in future FREEZE-O-RAMAs, so help me decide… purdy please???
