We live on the Oregon Coast and lots of fresh crab is the benefit. This is very tasty.

I did make some changes, so it took me a while to decide if I should rate it, but I will because I owe the thanks for the base to you! I thought I had sour cream, but it had gone bad and I noticed after I had gone to the store, so I used about about 3/8 cup fat free mayo instead (I was worried about this but it was no issue). Because I used mayo I reduced the salt to 3/4 teaspoon. I used lump crab, 1 cup of cheddar (we never eat swiss), a quarter of a small sweet onion (I hate that you have to buy green onion as a small bush), and added about 1/2 bunch of blanched asparagus (for good measure). It was really Really REALLY good. If you substitute with mayo, I would use only 1/2 teaspoon salt. Ours wasn't too salty, but it could have been a little less salty. YUM!

This was incredibly good. I substitued Yogurt for the sour cream and cheddar for the Swiss cheese. A definite make-agian

Use of flour in Quiche is NOT proper and takes away from the texture and taste. I liked the use of REAL sour cream though
