Winning Crab Quiche Recipe

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.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 1 hour YIELD:6-8 servings


  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 2 cans (6 ounces each) flaked crabmeat, drained
  • 1/3 cup chopped green onions
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 2 cups shredded Swiss cheese

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the mayonnaise, flour, eggs and milk. Stir in the crab, onion, parsley and cheese. Spoon into the pastry shell.

"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."
