Finally add crab mixture and half and half (can use whole whipping cream too). Cook 5-7 minutes longer on medium heat, keep stirring until heated through nicely. I add a little sugar to the crab meat - optional. The original recipie was with Dungeness Crab - which is nice and sweet.

  • Absolutely delicious, quick, and simple! Tastes very gourmet. I add some imitation crab, as that adds some sweetness. Everytime I make it, there are never leftovers. - 12/2/10
