READY IN: 1hr
Recipe by Kittencal@recipezazz

This is a very delicious seafood quiche, I have made this quite often for a luncheons, everyone just loves it. This recipe make 2, 8-inch pies, just divide all ingredients evenly between the two pie shells. If my memory serves me right, I believe the original recipe called for one large deep-dish, 10-inch pie plate, but I prefer to make it into two, 8-inch pies.

Quite tasty! I followed some other suggestions here and make the entire recipe into one deep-dish pie plate. Although, I did only use 4oz total of cream cheese (half of what recipe calls for), after reading comments. I used a combination of shrimp, bay scallops and crab meat (to total 1lbs) and it was excellent!! Cooked it an extra 10 minutes just to be sure it was set. A nice treat for my non-meat-eating guests!! Thanks, will keep this one!
