Crab Quiche

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by hollygollygee

This recipe is from the Kansas State Nurses Assoc. Cookbook submitted by Robbie Davis of Topeka Kansas. I make this easy delicious quiche often and I am always asked for the recipe. I have many friends and family members who have made it a staple in their households so I figured rather than writing it down again and again...I would just post it here and direct them to this site! It's not the healthiest dish, but it sure is good and too easy to believe:)

I made this last night and we loved it! I did make a couple of changes. One, I eliminated the salt but added a little pepper and garlic powder. Two, I used mozzarella cheese and a bit of sharp provolone because I didn't have swiss on hand. Thirdly, I didn't realize until after the quiche was in the oven that I forgot to add the milk...but, it didn't seem to matter because it was still delicious and had a great texture. I also made this crustless and just sprayed the pie plate since we are trying to cut back on carbs. Thanks so much for this recipe, it's a keeper! P.S I use to live in Topeka and have fond memories of our time there, so I enjoyed knowing this originated there.
