The original recipe did not call for the poached egg on top. I had a cream of Asparagus soup and it was served with a poached egg on top . When I made this soup , I thought of the poached egg on top , I love it , but some of you may find it too rich, its still a great easy soup if you prefer to leave off the egg.
1Wash leeks well , then thinly slice leeks and celery stalk. Saute' in melted butter for 5 mins. or until soft. Add cream soup and milk , or you can use water, bring to a gentle simmer ,add crab meat and simmer another 5 mins. Sever with poached egg on top of soup in bowl, and buttered french baguette.
