Crab Quiche- Easy

Kathie Carr


I got this recipe when I lived in Santa Cruz, CA. Every year we anxiously awaited the fresh crab season to begin. Boats came into the wharf with big, beautiful, cheap fresh crab. Oh, were they good!

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. :)
