I made this soup for dinner tonight and it was delicious!! This recipe is rich and flavorful, and it is very easy to prepare. The only change I made was to add the crab meat during the last five minutes of the cooking time-- that way the crab meat pieces don't flake apart. Thanks, Uncle Frank and Chalsea!

I made Franks cream of Crab soup. It was excellent. The only change that I would make would be to eliminate the salt.The old bay seasoning was enough
