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.
