This is my favorite Crab Bisque. It is quick and easy to make and it freezes nicely.

Easy, easy, easy! In fact, I'd say that it took less than 30 minutes to make; probably more like 15-20 from start to finish. I made half the recipe and it was enough for three main course servings. I used milk in place of the whipping cream and about nine ounces of imitation chunk crabmeat. My DS and I didn't care for the thyme so I'd probably leave that out next time... and there will definitely be a next time, since he loves anything with crab and this was sooo quick and easy.

This is so fast and easy to put together. I only made half the recipe but still added the 1/4 teaspoon of pepper and I added some salt to taste. I will definitely make this again.

This was very good and extremely easy. I used imitation crab and would have liked a little more heat, love the addition of the corn. Next time I will add some Old Bay or some hot sauce or both.
