I was going to make crab alfredo last night for dinner and came up with this dish instead, so as not to be too rich. I had to write it down as I went along and added ingredients! My hubby said it was very good! We will have this again!
Creamy Crab & Potato Bisque/Chowder
2 (2 ½ oz.) pkg. Starkist crab 2 c. frozen corn 4 med. to lg. potatoes, peeled & cubed 1 lg. onion, diced 1 c. spaetzle, optional 1 (10 oz.) container Digiorno alfredo sauce 1 c. water 2 c. milk dried chives, to taste salt & pepper, to taste 2 – 3 dashes garlic powder 3 tbl. butter ¼ c. instant potato flakes
Saute diced onion in butter. Add potato flakes to make roux. Add corn and potatoes and stir well. Add alfredo sauce, water and milk; stir well. Add chives, salt, pepper and garlic powder to mixture and blend. Simmer on low for 45 minutes, or till potatoes are crisp tender. Add spaetzle to mixture, cover and simmer another 15 minutes, then add crab and stir. Cover and simmer 15 minutes to blend flavors. Serves 4 – 6.
Note: You may need to add more water or milk to thin the chowder, or some more instant potato flakes to thicken. I added another ½ to ¾ c. water to chowder and didn’t need to add more potato flakes. This is very good but a tad rich.
