Crab Quiche

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Stoblogger

Fix it and forget it for 45 minutes. I combined ideas from several recipes to create this somewhat lighter version of quiche for brunch, lunch, or dinner. Elegant, high in protein, high in flavor. Serves well as a main course or entire meal.

Love this recipe. It's so versatile. I too did not have crab so I tried two different kinds. One with a smokey ham & swiss. The other with thawed frozen spinach, ricotta cheese, ham & sauteed onions. They were both very good. Love recipes like this. It also took longer to cook than 35 minutes. I would use 400 next time. Thanks for the awesome recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prepare the crust, if using frozen, thaw completely on counter before filling.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°.
  3. Beat the eggs, stir in the shredded cheese, half-n-half, Old Bay seasoning, and shredded crab meat.
  4. Old Bay Seasoning contains both salt and pepper so you may not need to add additional salt or pepper. I don't.
  5. Pour into unbaked pie shell.
  6. Place on center oven rack for 35 minutes. Cover just the edges of crust with foil if they are browning too quickly.
  7. Check center of quiche, if jiggly, bake 10 more minutes or until center is done to your preference.
  8. Let stand for 5 minutes, serve hot with tomato slices or salad.
