“Our son always loved this recipe. He never knew it was made with you-know-what, FAKE crab, until after he worked on a crab boat a few years ago! Of course, you can always use real crab. It's easy to put together and with a salad it makes a nice meal. I always make it with lowfat sour cream, lowfat soup, and I just use butter flavored cooking spray to replace the butter. When done this way it cuts out almost all the fat, and it's still good.”
