Living on the coast of Texas most of my life, I love seafood, just about any kind except oysters.
Today we are going to serve up a spoonful of comfort. Nothing beats a bowl of steamy soup on a chilly day. This creamy bisque will soothe the senses and warm the hearts of your loved ones.
2 cups chopped onion
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup chopped green peppers
4 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup butter
4 cups diced peeled potatoes
2 cups milk
4 cups half-and half cream
10 ounces process cheese ( Velveeta), cut in 1
1 can (1 pound) crabmeat, drained, flaked
and cartilage removed.
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
In a soup kettle or Dutch oven, sauté the
onions, celery, green peppers and garlic in
butter until tender. Reduce heat to medium:
add potatoes and milk. Cook uncovered, for 20
minutes or until potatoes are just tender, stirring occasionally.
Remove 1 1/2 cups of the potato mixture; mash
and return to the pan. Reduce heat to low. Stir in half-
and- half and process cheese. Cook and stir until cheese
is melted. Add the crab, salt and pepper. Cook 10
minutes longer or until heated through.
I do not have a picture because Roy and I are on a diet,
but I think you will really enjoy this bisque.
