deep dish pie crust
1 1/2 cups
shredded Swiss cheese
ground black pepper
This is a MUST!! I took the advise of others and used sour cream instead of mayo, an extra egg, extra pepper for spice, and I carmalized onions to add. I made it for Thanksgiving brunch and it was gone before I could even get a slice! My restaurant-owner family friend raved about it!! USE REAL CRAB!
use real crab meat.
This recipe is super easy to make and is really good. You can also substitute the crab & swiss with cooked breakfast sausage & cheddar.
They will always want seconds with this quiche.
This was great! I am on Weight Watchers and made it using fat-free mayo, low-fat cheese and Egg Beaters and it was still DELICIOUS! I love that it was so quick and easy to make, too. Great for during the week.
Great recipe! Delicious and very easy to make. I used lowfat (2g fat) mayo and you would never know the difference. Also I added green onion as was suggested previously. This recipe will replace my old seafood quiche recipe which was much fussier to prepare.
I promise this is the best crab quiche recipe ever made. you can use 1/2 cup egg product instead of the 2 eggs. I used cream instead of milk for a richer flavor. After mixing everything together I added 3 T dried onion, 1 T flour, 1 t garlic powder, 1 t old bay, and 1 t hot sauce. My parents died over it. I made crab cakes the night before and they said they liked this so much better.
This is super easy and tasty. The kids do not like seafood, so I use diced ham with cheddar for theirs. It is a good base quiche receipe that can easily be 'morphed' into a family favorite. Easy to make low fat as well using low fat mayo and eggbeaters. Good protein source with low carbs!
I made this for Christmas eve dinner and everyone loved it. I didn't alter the recipe at all and it was perfect which is really saying something because I love to play with ingredients.
