This goes together in a flash-and is really flexible for using ingredients on hand. You can either make this with noodles or dumplings, or leave them out. We like our soup salty, so adjust that to your taste.
I got this recipe from a restaurant in Baltimore, Maryland many years ago. When the chef gave it to me, he, accidentally on purpose, left out the Cream Sherry, but I knew to include it. You can purchase crab roe from Charleston Seafood. It is $18.37 for 1 lb. (frozen) (shipped overnight). You can contact them at www.charlestonseafood.com or 1-(888) 609-3474. A substitute for crab roe are the yolks of hard boiled eggs. Your guests will absolutely love this VERY EASY TO MAKE SOUP.
This soup is my own recipe and is easy to make. It's thick and creamy texture is very filling and combined with a crusty french bread becomes a meal unto itself. Reheats on the stove or in the microwave very well so don't be afraid to make this several days ahead of time.
This is one of my favorite soups. I got this recipe from my most used cookbook. Try using turkey bacon and light/fat free ingredients for a healthier option. Cooking times does not include baking potatoes
This is one of my favorite soup recipes, especially in the fall when it's just getting crisp and cool outside. However, it's also great in the summer when my basil is going nuts (like it is right now!)
This recipe came from my friend, Michelle, who I used to work with...This was her Mom's recipe -- who was the chef in a small bistro here in Southern Indiana...Michelle's Mom passed away a couple of years ago and I'm so proud to have this recipe to pass on...
