Not too many ingredients, and very affordable. I think this could be a very versatile recipe - you could add asparagus, roasted red peppers, sauteed celery, different cheeses.
In this application, I sauteed finely diced onion, which I liked better than the scallions in the original crab dip recipe.
Creamy Crab Quiche
1 prepared pie crust, unbaked
1 can lump crabmeat (in can, not refrigerated)
1 medium onion, finely diced
2 T butter
1 cup shredded swiss cheese
1/2 cup heavy cream*
3 T parmesan cheese
1 tsp dijon
1 tsp horseradish
1. In a saute pan, melt the butter and cook the diced onion over medium heat until just starting to brown.
2. Sprinkle swiss cheese over unbaked crust.
3. Drain the crabmeat. Break apart the lumps and sprinkle over swiss cheese.
4. Top with browned onions.
5. Mix eggs, cream, dijon, horseradish, salt and pepper and pour over onions [in crust].
6. Top with shredded parmesan and bake at 375 degrees for approximately 35-40 minutes, or until crust is browned and egg is set in center of quiche.
7. Allow to rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing and serving.
* I know you're cringing at the heavy cream, but trust me, it's necessary. I know there are evil things out there, like "fat-free half and half". Not good people, not good at all. Sometimes a little fat is all that will do to make your recipes taste authentic. Just have a small piece - everything in moderation.
