"This recipe was given to me by the dear woman who taught me how to cook. It is so tasty and always a crowd favorite! I can't tell you how many people ask for this recipe after a party, and they're always shocked at how easy it is to make! Serve with Ritz® crackers or garlic bread."
Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat; cook and stir onion and garlic in butter until onion is tender, 7 to 8 minutes. Add cream-style corn and cream of potato soup and reduce heat to medium-low; slowly bring to a simmer, stirring frequently. Stir cream and crab into soup, stirring until heated through, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Garnish with green onions.
This dish will be very thick during cooking until the heavy whipping cream is added. Stir frequently to prevent the cream from scorching. I add Cajun seasoning (such as Tony's) sometimes when I want to change the flavor just a tad. Serving in a bread bowl dresses the dish up on special occasions.
