“This recipe is from 1942 and it is a real classic!” - by MARBALET
Original recipe yields 4 to 6 servings
- In a large saucepan over medium heat melt the butter or margarine, add the flour and stir well forming a paste, or roux. Add the salt and pepper. Slowly add the milk or half-and-half, stirring constantly until thickened. (Note: This may take a little while, but keep close as it can scorch quickly.)
- Add cheese and continue to stir well until all cheese melts and mixture is smooth. Add the hot pepper sauce and the crab and allow to heat through. Ladle into individual bowls and sprinkle with chives just before serving.

I also substituted a full one-pound can of refrigerated claw crabmeat, because it's what I had on hand. Thanks for the recipe!"
"This was a good starting point but I felt it needed more so I added some soy sauce, a small can of corn, onion powder, old bay and seasoned salt (took some ideas from other recipes on this site). And..." See more it turned out really good. I also increased the roux because we like our soup more like chowder."
