Crab Quiche

Tonight, I made our first quiche.  I had a bunch of left over eggs from Christmas baking, and I decided to try something new to use them.  Sadly, I do not have a picture (even though I got a new camera for Christmas) because it went so fast.  I used this Southern Living recipe as a guide and made a couple of my own changes.  I can't wait to make some more!!!  I hope that you enjoy it as much as we did!

Here's what I did...

Crab Quiche
2 cans lump crab meat, drained and chopped
4 green onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup of 6 Cheese Blend
3 large eggs
1 cup half and half
1 tablespoon Old Bay seasoning
1/2 tablespoon lemon peel (dried)
1/8 tablespoon cayenne pepper
1 frozen pie crust
Olive oil

Preheat oven to 400F.  Saute green onions and garlic in the olive oil over medium high heat for two minutes.  Add crabmeat, Old Bay, lemon peel, and cayenne pepper for two minutes.  

Whisk eggs and half and half together in a large bowl.  Add crab mixture and cheese to the bowl and mix together.  Pour mixture into pie crust and bake for 40 minutes in the oven.  Remove from the oven and let stand for 15 minutes.



  1. I miss your recipes! What are you up to lately??

  2. Oh wow! Thanks for stopping by! I've been super busy since starting my job. It's amazing how I could find time to blog when I was a student, but as a full time nurse, I'm swamped. I've reinserted exercise into my life which I think has made a difference, too. :) I've got a couple of things that I need to post so I'm hoping to make time to do them soon! Take care, Katie
