In a quart freezer bag:
- ½ cup instant mashed potatoes
- ½ cup dry milk
- 2 Tbsp shelf-stable Parmesan cheese
- 2 tsp Old Bay® Seasoning, Garlic & Herb blend
- ¼ tsp dried thyme
- 1 Tbsp or 1 packet extra virgin olive oil
- 6 ounce can crabmeat

Drain crabmeat, discarding water. Drain clam juice into cooking pot. Add 2 cups water and oil, bring to boil. Add in crabmeat and clams, and dry ingredients. Stir well, take off stove, cover and let sit for 5 minutes. Stir well and add hot sauce if desired.
In cool temperatures or at altitude, a pot cozy will retain heat.
