Real Crab Bisque

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by HeatherFeather

Adapted from Best of the Best of Georgia. A recipe supposedly from Elizabeth of 37th restaurant. A nice way to serve this is in hollowed out individual bread rounds as bowls.

What a workout! But worth it in the end! Thanks to those who reviewed before me, I did assemble my ingredients prior to starting and it made it a lot easier. I also added extra carrots, and about one teaspoon of minced garlic (I love the stuff). I also used fresh chicken stock, it didn't need extra salt but I added a good dose of Old Bay for an extra kick. Super yummy!
