Crab & Vegetable Pot Pies


We LOVE Red Lobster!  Why?  We love seafood.  So a few months back we went and they had this great little crab pot pie.  Mmmmm......So I decided to come up with one myself.  Thought I'd share!  Perfect for the winter weather coming my way!
First, saute the onions, peas and carrots in oil.  When mostly tender ad the devined shrimps and crab chunks.  Cook until shrimp is mostly pink.
Add the flour and butter and mix until melted.  Then add the broth and milk.  Add Old Bay Seasoning for taste.  (This is a seafood seasoning.  It is so yummy and really makes this dish so don't leave it out!!)

Bring to a low boil until it thickens.
Now for the biscuits.  Mix flour, salt and baking powder.  Add cheese and then milk.
Mix it all together.
Place crab mixture into little bowls or custard dishes on a baking sheet.
Plop a spoonful of the biscuit batter on the top.
Bake!  They should look golden brown and delicious when they are done.

See!  Doesn't that look tasty!!  

This is a great meal if you are having guest.  Get some disposable mini pie pans and make everyone their own.  Now no one can take too much and everyone has something warm to eat.
