I have made this quiche 6 or 8 times. It is delicious. At first I found that the store-bought frozen crust baked in the aluminum pie pan was often soggy or soft. The last time I made it I removed the still frozen crust from the cheapie pan and put it in my oven safe glass (Pyrex) pie pan. What a difference! Crispy and flakey. My Pyrex pan is a little bigger but during baking the crust molded to fit. Another tip for ultimate presentation: Just before baking place thinly sliced cheddar slivers in a starburst pattern in the center of the quiche. Sprinkle with a dry green herb like dill or thyme. Beautiful AND delicius!

I like all of the ingredients in this dish, love I expected this would be a big hit for me and was planning on having it for leftover lunches all week. The only change I made was to add some chopped green onions, but I was highly disappointed. It was a weird texture and the taste was extremely artificial to me. I am going to try one more piece later today, but I am afraid I'm going to have to toss the whole thing. :-(

This was REALLY good!! I didn't have (or want to make) a crust, so I just didn't use one. Hubby liked it better this way, said "you can taste the crab better without it". I didn't think this was bland at all; the flavor of the crab really came through. I added a little salt, pepper and garlic powder, and used 3 eggs and Alpine Lace reduced fat swiss cheese and light mayo. (Prepared this way, it's only 4 points per serving in Weight Watchers.) Good recipe! Thanks!

This was really good, with the following changes: I added one egg, about 1/3 cup of green onion, about a 1/2 teaspoon of lemon pepper seasoning, and about 1/4 cup of white wine. I also used closer to 2 cups of cheese--a mix of cheddar, mozzarella, and swiss. With all the additions, my quiche had to bake for about 50 minutes. Without the additions, I don't think it would have been as tasty, nor would it have filled the pie shell adequately.

This was WONDERFUL. My husband quit eating only when it was all gone. I added a package of chopped spinach (very well drained!!) to add some green to the meal. Served it with a fruit salad. Someone mentioned that this was runny...I would advise letting this set for 5 minutes after removing from the oven.

The base for this quiche recipe is foolproof. I love the base because it uses ingredients that I always have on hand. I used jumbo lump crabmeat and Gruyere cheese and added 1/4 t kosher salt and pepper. I did, however, have to make an additional half a recipe of filling in order to fill the pie shell. No big deal though. I made the quiches the night before the baby shower I was hosting and then just warmed them in a 350 deg. oven for 15 minutes. Everyone raved aboout them.

This was excellent. My husband is a very picky eater, but for some reason he likes imitation crab. I did make the crust, i just like homemade pie crust. The only modification was that I added extra cheese. My husband ate half the pie and then asked for it again the next night:) It looks like this will be a staple in our house. ok so here is an update: I have made this many times since and do it a bit different now. I add half of an onion chopped finely as well as some cayenne pepper, and I use three eggs. Also i chop the crab because i don't like biting into huge chunks. I have also made it many times omitting the crust
