This comes from my sister and is just wonderful and easy to put together. I usually make it in the crockpot to keep it warm for family gatherings.


  1. Melt butter in large skillet.
  2. Add onions and saute.
  3. Add parsley and flour, stir to desolve flour.
  4. Add cream and cheese.
  5. Fold in crab meat.
  6. Add salt to taste and garnish with cayenne pepper.
  7. Serve warm in bread bowls with melba toast.

Definately a 5 star in our book. I added thin sliced sauted mushrooms and then used it as a crepe filling. This was delicious along with roasted asparagus and a small salad. Thank you for posting!

Instead of Swiss, I used Gruyere cheese with very good results! I made this to have when a friend was coming over, and we both enjoyed it! The leftovers went very well over some puff pastry for me for lunch. I didn't use the cayenne pepper either, and just garnished it with a sprinkle of Tony Chachere's seasoning instead. Loved this!

This was good and easy to make. We used old bay to garnish instead of the cayenne pepper. The rest of the recipe I followed.
