Cheesy Cheddar Crab Quiche

Cheesy Cheddar Crab Quiche created by Stoblogger

Fix it and forget it for 45 minutes. I combined ideas from several recipes to create this somewhat lighter version of quiche for brunch, lunch, or dinner. Elegant, high in protein, high in flavor. Serves well as a main course or entire meal.

ingredients

directions

  • Prepare the crust, if using frozen, thaw completely on counter before filling.
  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Beat the eggs, stir in the shredded cheese, half-n-half, Old Bay seasoning, and shredded crab meat.
  • Old Bay Seasoning contains both salt and pepper so you may not need to add additional salt or pepper. I don't.
  • Pour into unbaked pie shell.
  • Place on center oven rack for 35 minutes. Cover just the edges of crust with foil if they are browning too quickly.
  • Check center of quiche, if jiggly, bake 10 more minutes or until center is done to your preference.
  • Let stand for 5 minutes, serve hot with tomato slices or salad.

    Does "beat the eggs" mean with an electric beater or just a fork? Is it supposed to get fluffy or just mixed together like scrambled egg batter?

    Love this recipe. It's so versatile. I too did not have crab so I tried two different kinds. One with a smokey ham & swiss. The other with thawed frozen spinach, ricotta cheese, ham & sauteed onions. They were both very good. Love recipes like this. It also took longer to cook than 35 minutes. I would use 400 next time. Thanks for the awesome recipe.

    My local grocer didn't have any crab, so I substituted kielbasa sausage and it turned out great. Very easy to prepare. However it took a great deal longer than 35 minutes to cook. I would shoot for 400 and closer to an hour and check it constantly. Came out delicious!
