Crab Quiche- Easy
And we always had fresh lemons on our small backyard lemon tree. We were more than ready for fresh crab dinners.
This crust-less quiche is just one recipe I learned to make back then. It can be a main dish served with a salad or cut into smaller sections and serve as an appetizer.
One warning... its not low-cal. :)
