Quiche and Tell: Crab Quiche

I love quiche, so I made this old one from my
 recipe file over the weekend. Crab Quiche.
This yummy quiche has a few unusual ingredients.
If you have a piecrust ready, the rest of the 
ingredients are quickly mixed together. 
Shredded cheddar cheese, eggs,
sour cream, a can of French fried onions
a can of crabmeat, and seasonings. 
 Mix that all together.
 Pour into an unbaked pie shell.
 Bake for 35 minutes.
 A green salad or tomato salad would be a 
nice side. We had tea, but wine would be nice
too for company. A chocolate chip bundt
cake for dessert, company or not!
 Brunch or lunch.
Leftovers for the next day...a bonus! 
Ok, here's the recipe, because I quiche and tell!

Crab Quiche
3 XL eggs slightly beaten
1 can French fried onions, crushed
1 can crabmeat, drained 
1 C sour cream
1 C shredded cheddar cheese, 4-oz
garlic or seasoned salt, pepper, Old Bay
(season as desired)
Mix all ingredients and pour into an
unbaked pie shell. Bake @350 for 35 minutes.
Let rest for 5 minutes before cutting.


  1. Hi, Rita!!!! I am so glad to have seen this recipe today! I'm going to try it out. I have some crabmeat that is just waiting for something to do other than land in a pot of gumbo! I love quiche, but I have never made it from scratch. (I cheat and buy it at Costco!) It looks about as easy to do as a frittata, which I frequently make. I'm no stranger to whipping up pie crust, so I'll give it a whirl! Have a safe and happy holiday weekend!

  2. I love quiche too, but mostly order it when I am eating out. Your recipe looks delish and makes me want to give it a try, thanks.

  3. I made this today and it is absolutely delicious. I didn't even use a pie crust, I just mixed up the filling & poured it right into a glass pie pan sprayed with Pam. I added a can of shrimp too. I was afraid the onions would be overpowering but they weren't, they just added a nice subtle flavor.
    Can't wait to eat the leftovers tomorrow for breakfast with a cup of coffee! Thanks!

  4. In the oven now! I made you sausage alfredo recently and my hubby is asking when I'm making it again. Thanks for sharing your recipes!
