  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.

My boyfriend "politely" ate 3 bites, then pushed the plate away proclaiming he was full. Needless to say, I won't be making this again.

Fabulous dish. Didn't realize how filling it can be. I made it for a mother's day brunch with a few changes. I also tripled the tabasco sauce per another reviewer's recommendation. Even so I sti...

I really loved this quiche. So did my daughter. My husband even ate it and doesn't like much seafood. I followed the recipe exactly (maybe a little extra tabasco), but found the cook time wasn't...

Wonderful and easy recipe. Made a few modifications which is why I gave four stars and not five: used half and half, real crab meat and added 1/4 cup Bisquick pancake mix (omitting the pie crust...
