My husband loves quiche and he asked me if I could try to make him one. I decided to try a crab quiche, and it was gone in one sitting. You won't be disappointed!

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Bake the pie crust for about 10 minutes, until just starting to brown. Remove from the oven, and allow to cool.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, cream, salt, pepper, and hot sauce. Stir in shredded cheese, onion and imitation crab. Pour into the pie shell.
  3. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, then turn off the oven, but leave the door closed. Leave quiche in the oven for an additional 20 to 30 minutes until firm. This will give it a smoother texture.

I'm giving this five stars because I used real crabmeat; I live in Maryland and it's relatively reasonable. Even if you're land-locked, you can buy canned crabmeat in the tuna aisle. Friends don't let friends (or relatives) eat the fake stuff!!!

I made this for dinner tonight and it was delicious! My mom has been the "quiche queen" in the family - until now! I may be able to give her a run for her money with this one! I made a few adjustments...We hate imitation crab, so I used canned. I only had half-n-half so I used that with 1 t. cornstarch added to it in place of the heavy cream. I also added garlic powder, a little Old Bay, and touch more hot sauce. Hubby had thirds and even picky 13-yr. old daughter left none on the plate. Served with a big salad. I will certainly make this again soon.

this is absolutely delicious the way it is, but I made changes another time to decrease the fat/calories and it was as good...used egg whites instead of eggs, thickened rice milk instead of heavy cream, and added 1 tsp. Old Bay Seasoning...
