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.
