This is great, if ya love crab..we, however, do not like crab..( have no idea what I was

How to Make Creamy bacon&crabmeat Chardonnay sauce


    But, this should give you a basic concept and will still turn out good/great..maybe even better then mine..:)
  2. Let's get started..:)
    Place butter in large sauce pan..turn on burner to med/low ..
    Slice your onion and dice it up into large pieces..put in pan..slice your mushrooms, thickly..and put in pan..
  3. Slice and mince your garlic cloves and put in pan..sauté all ..till onions and mushrooms start to brown up just a bit..sprinkle some tarragon across the top of all, about twice, but sprinkle it lightly, not heavy handed..:(.. Sprinkle some basil across all as well, a tad bit more basil than tarragon..then sprinkle some garlic sea salt over all..lightly...once over..lightly sprinkle some allspice over all..( remember, you just want a hint..),
  4. Stir to mix..continue to sauté ..pour in about 1/4 cup Chardonnay..continue to simmer for a bit longer..add your crab meat, break it up good..(incidentally, raw lump crab meat would be so much better, and you would now slice it up and cook in pan now..) ( I bought the wrong kind of crab:(.. Live and learn..)
  5. If using raw, fresh..sauté till done.. Now place your cream cheese in pan..mush, mash, stir... Crumble your feta into pan..( very small crumbles...), stir..pour in about 1/2-3/4 pint heavy cream..stirring frequently..till thickened..add more tarragon, basil, garlic sea salt and all spice..
  6. Note..when you put your crab meat..remember to drain the juices( or squeeze) , into pan w/the crab..also..nows the time to dice up ab1/4# of your bacon and fry..put half bacon into sauce once it is almost done..add about 3-4 TBL.bacon grease as well..stir good..when all done ..sprinkle the remainder of bacon pieces over the not stir.ince you've done that..
  7. Okay..once it has begun to thicken..add about a 1/4 cup more Chardonnay ..continue to simmer gently till thick..thin out w/1/2&1/2..continue to simmer..add some sprinkles of white pepper across the want a hint not overpowering..
    You'll want to thicken..then thin out w/1% milk..continue to simmer , remember to stir frequently..
  8. About 4 or 5 times you will thicken and then thin out..and on the last time you will be done..adding spices conservatively each time you thicken/or thin..add a few sprinkle of freshly ground sea salt along the way..
    And sprinkle ( once ) a little garlic powder across the top ( lightly..)
  9. Boil up some egg noodles..ladle some sauce over noodles..sprinkle a little black pepper over the top w/a little freshly ground sea salt..
  10. And enjoy!
    Seve w/fresh cooked cauliflower on the side..:)
