In Canandaigua, New York, Geneva Schmidtka blends together a rich, cheesy sauce that showcases canned crab meat. The creamy mixture can be served with toast points for a special lunch or over chicken, rice or potatoes for a distinctive dinner.


  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
  • 1/3 cup white wine or chicken broth
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 can (6 ounces) crabmeat, drained, flaked and cartilage removed
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  1. In a small saucepan, combine soup and wine or broth. Cook and stir over medium heat until blended and heated through. Stir 1/2 cupful into the egg; return all to the pan.
  2. Place the crab in a greased shallow 1-qt. baking dish; top with soup mixture. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 20 minutes or until the top is lightly browned and cheese is melted.
