This is a recipe that I put together because I wanted a low-carb, high protein dish with crab. It is baked the same way as a quiche, except there is no crust.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat up a non-stick skillet. Place 1 tablespoon canola oil in heated skillet. Sauté sliced mushrooms on medium heat until browned and soft. Take off heat and set aside.
  2. Grate the Gruyere cheese, set aside.
  3. Chop the green onions; set aside.
  4. Pour 1 tablespoon canola oil into a quiche pan (or deep pie pan) and spread inside the bottom and sides; set aside.
  5. In a small mixing bowl, add eggs, milk, mayonnaise, cornstarch and Tabasco sauce. Mix using a whisk until smooth.
  6. Arrange crab, cheese, green onions and mushrooms in the quiche pan evenly.
  7. Pour egg mixture into the pan.
  8. Bake in a 350°F oven for 35-40 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.
  9. Let cool 5-10 minutes, slice and serve.

Loved this! I used fake crab and it was wonderful. I used chives instead of green onions and fat free mayo (which made it curdle a bit but didn't effect the taste). I also left off the tabasco because I didn't want it too hot for the kids. A good easy meal. Thanks!
