I thought this was really good. I skipped the olive oil and used fat free half and half. I also mashed up the potatoes a little at the end to thicken it up a little. I would make it again.

sounds so good but how much is one serving?

Quite yummy and very flavorful, but it was more soup-like than thick and chowder-like. The second time I made it, I used chopped up crab meat instead of crab salad (couldn't find any at the store), skipped the oil, used fat free half & half and reduced the chicken broth to 3 cups, and it was much thicker. The nutmeg adds a very interesting twist, too.

Like my grandmother's sweet cornbread with less sugar, a hint of corn niblets and half the fat.
Perfect crab cakes with no bread.
