There are many different ways to prepare dishes with crab meat. If you are looking for a great comfort recipe, this is the one for you. Crab Pot Pie takes the traditional ingredients of chicken or turkey pot pie recipes and turns the ordinary pot pie recipe into a fabulous seafood stuffed pot pie with veggies. The crispiness of the pot pie combined with the savory buttery crab makes this recipe a favorite for many generations.
Preheat oven to 350F.
In a 2 quart sauce pot, render bacon over medium heat until slightly crispy. Add butter and onions and cook until translucent stirring occasionally.
Add flour and stir to form a roux or a paste. Turn burner down to low.
Add clam juice and heavy cream, whisk until smooth, bring to a simmer over low heat.
Add remaining vegetables and herbs, bring to a simmer and cover keeping the heat on low, stir occasionally with a spoon for 20 minutes. Check potatoes for doneness.
When potatoes are tender, fold in crabmeat carefully as to not break up the lump meat. Adjust seasoning with Old Bay, Salt and Pepper. Remove from heat.
Place the pot pie mix into a deep earthenware baking dish (preferably 3 inches deep). Brush egg wash around the rim of the dish and place the sheet of puff pastry dough on top.
Gently press the puff dough around the rim to seal. Trim excess pastry dough away from the dish.
Brush the dough with egg wash and bake for 20 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
