  1. 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.


  • Cook's Note:
  • 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.
