"This is a lowfat, delicious quiche! I am always asked for this recipe (I serve often at brunches). Can be made ahead & baked next day, and/or frozen. Leftovers are wonderful when warmed in microwave and placed on toasted english muffin. My 2 year-old loves it too. NOTE: Do not use real crab meat; it will not come out the same. "

"Very tasty dish, easy to make and quite economical too. I used grated Edam cheese and red onion. Thanks for posting."
"I was apprehensive about this, but it was very yummy! I sauteed the onions in 1/4 tsp. of butter before I put them in the crab mixture. I also added a little Old Bay and some cayenne for some kick. It turned out great and I will definitely make it again."
I altered the recipe slightly. I used green onions because I had some I needed to use and added a cup of thawed chopped spinach because my family doesn't believe it's a quiche without spinach. :o). Also, since I added in the spinach I threw in another egg.
The only change I'd like to try in the future would be to add a pinch of old bay seasoning to the crab mixture.
All in all, it's a wonderful weeknight meal when served with a salad on the side."
"Hi there. WOW what a quiche.I made this exactly as recipe stated but with real crab meat (aussie mud crabs). My fussy hubby went back for thirds. A definite keeper"
"I am on Atkins and I made this with heavy cream on the first go-round, which worked fine. Today I substituted 2 cans of salmon and used light cream and it was even better. Easy, cheap to make and great flavor."
"I lightly sauteed both the crab and the onion (added a little minced garlic) in butter and sprinkled it with about a TBL of Old Bay before assembly. Also added some cooked chopped spinach. Used a cheddar/Monterey jack/colby cheese blend that I had on hand. We like the crustless quiche but would probably be good in a pastry shell."
"I cheated and used a pie crust, regular evaporated milk, and whole fresh eggs. Oh BABY, was it good! Thanks for a fantastic recipe we'll be enjoying again and again!"
"Pretty good, but the texture of the imitation crab was still weird. Maybe doing something to soften it before chopping might help. Also, this recipe would strongly benefit from a crust."
"I added 1/4 tsp. of Old Bay seasoning, instead of the dry mustard. I would try this again, but like RedRacer, I think I would saute the onions first, and maybe try the cayenne as well, Overall, a nice little quiche-easy to prepare, and very tasty."
"This was an easy to prepare, healthy, low cost meal. I cut the onions back to 2/3 C when I started looking at the ratio to krab, and next time I will cut the amount to about 1/3 C for my taste preference. I also added 2 tsp. Old Bay, and I'll double or triple the amount next time. The cooking time was perfect."
"Yum, quick and delicious! A few slices each were great as a light dinner served along with a some asparagus and lettuce."
"Very good! I did it all in the food processor (veggies, crab, and cheese first, then the egg mixture). I used half an onion, 2 banana peppers, and 2 jalape?os and the spiciness level was perfect for us. I might try it in a crust next time."
"wonderful recipe...we loved it! I used egg beaters too and it was a huge hit...will put in my favorite recipes..."
"Wonderful quiche. So much flavor. I used monterey jack cheese. thanks it's_me_susan :) Made for Cookbook tag game"
"This was really good! I stuck in raw onion because I was too lazy to saute them and I actually liked the slight crunch and more intense flavor that they lent to the dish. But then again, I love onion. My hubby, who is on a low carb diet, ate the leftovers and RAVED! Will definitely make many more times. Thank you for posting!"
"Great dish, however, I think next time I will add some cayenne pepper and garlic for more of a kick. Perhaps even artichokes? This recipe is definitely a nice recipe and looked absolutely perfect coming out of the oven. Beautiful!!"
"Mmmmmmmmm.....this is so good. I made this the other night for supper and made two. I didn't have enough crab meat so I subbed in some salad shrimp that I had in the freezer. Very easy to assemble and tasted to good. I served this with toast and fruit salad. Great meal. Thank you so much for sharing."
"Very good. Loke some others I added some old bay seasoning. I also chopped up some green pepper and added that too. It is even better the next day."
"I made this quiche the other night when I wanted to do something interesting with imitation crab. It turned out great! It looked so beautiful out of the oven and tasted just as good. I really appreciate an easy and delicious recipe like this. Thanks for posting!"
"Good but the onion was too strong. I would either precook the onion or use less next time."
