November 16 - Crab Quiche

Today is the boy's birthday! To celebrate his 32nd, the kiddos and I made crab quiche and chocolate cupcakes with blue cream cheese icing (Linds thinks it's so cool that we can change the color of food with a few drops of food coloring lately). I had a tub of crab that I wanted to use, but wasn't in the mood to do crab cakes; when I saw this recipe, I had to give it a try. It was delicious! Unfortunately, no fun recipe for the cupcakes...thanks Betty Crocker for the help ;-) The boy really loved all of the decorations, food, and presents, so it turned out to be quite the perfect birthday celebration.

Crab Quiche
1/2 cup light mayonnaise
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 eggs
1/2 cup milk
8 oz. crab meat
1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese
1/2 cup Sharp Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup chopped green onions
1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, beat together eggs, mayonnaise, flour, and milk until thoroughly blended. Stir in crab, cheese, and onion. Spread into pie shell.
  3. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
You can use any kind of pie crust, but I *always* use the Pillsbury frozen ones...I haven't found one that any of us like better.
