Mushroom Crab Bisque

This recipe was a cool weather favorite of both my mom and I.

Many years ago mom and I were visiting her next door neighbor Evelyn Washburn and she was cooking this crab bisque. Mom and I immediately LOVED it, and cooked it many times over the years. It is delightful!

Mushroom Crab Bisque

1 pkg fresh mushrooms washed and sliced
2 1/2 tsps salt, divided
1/4 C chopped onion
1/4 C melted butter or margarine
1/4 C flour
dash of pepper
2 1/2 C milk
1 pint Half and Half
1 can of crab meat
1 pinch of parsley flakes

In a covered sauce pan cook sliced mushrooms in 1 1/2 c of water and 1 tsp of salt for ten minutes, drain, reserving liquid and set mushrooms aside.

Saute onion in butter until tender and blend in flour, pepper and remaining salt. Stir in reserved mushroom liquid and milk. Cook over medium heat stirring constantly until mixture thickens and reaches boiling point. Clean crab and add half and half and mushrooms. Heat through, but do not boil.
