I made this today and it was fantastic. The blend of cheeses was perfect. I used three eggs instead of four as well as half and half instead of cream. I also put a bit of a Maryland twist to it and added Old Bay to the crab mixture. I will absolutely make this again! 5/22/10: Made this again, this time I added spinach, yum!!!

Loved this crab quiche, but I did add spinach and garlic as another had suggested and used a Persian Lime Olive Oil to sauté in.

I have made this quiche twice already and plan to make it again. I did make some modifications to make it more heart-healthy. I only had imitation crabmeat so I used that, sautéed the onion in cooking spray, used reduced fat shredded cheddar and a mixture of fat free half-and-half with egg whites. I also added some minced garlic. This was great as a simple dinner with a side salad. This recipe is going into my regular rotation. Thanks for posting!
