Winning Crab Quiche

Crabmeat is very plentiful here in Maryland, and this dish is one of my favorite ways to eat it. My sister-in-law Darlene gave me this recipe, and that simple gesture helped make me feel part of the family.

    I tried this recipe last night and it was fab. I did tweek it a little bit. I didn't use the parsley, but added frozen chopped spinach. I squeezed all the water out, and used a third of the box. I also used to taste, salt, pepper and garlic powder. I only had a can of refrigerated crab claw meat 16 oz, so I used the whole can. I can't wait to make this again. I will shield the crust next time, as it tried to get too brown. Great, great recipe. Bc

    Tried this for the first time tonight. Loved it. I used imitation crab meat. It got a little too brown, but was delicious anyway. Next time I might shield it for the last 15 mins with foil.

    Very yummy quiche! My husband is not a quiche fan, but he loved this one and almost ate half the pie. I used imitation crab meat, dried parsley, and what ever cheese I had on hand. It still turned out delicious. Glad I made it.

    Was not edible. Turned out to be a soggy mess. Very disappointing.
