Key Ingredients
Recipe Groups
15-16 cups
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1 cup raw onion (chopped fine)
  • 1 large can of pure pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie mix!)
  • 5 cups Chicken Broth
  • Black Pepper (to taste)
  • Cayenne Pepper (careful- the heat sneaks up on you)
  • Nutmeg (don't over do this, as there is nutmeg in the old bay, too)
  • Old Bay Seasoning
  • 2 cups crab meat (chopped up) (You can use baby shrimp - canned crab meat - whatever you want- it all comes out good)
  • 2 cups half & half
  1. Sauté onions in butter, add pumpkin, cook over low heat, gradually stir in chicken broth and add all your spices - I don't measure, I just keep adding until it tastes good to me... watch the Old Bay - it is spicy AND salty.
  2. Transfer the cooked mixture to a crock pot, then stir in the crab and cream- add more Old Bay as needed and heat through.




For Easter!

Additional Tips

I also use fat-free half and half and fat free chicken broth, it tastes just as good as regular. Some people puree the cooked pumpkin and  onion in a food processor before adding the chicken broth - but that is a lot of work and really not necessary-its still good a little chunky!
