Krab Quiche

Sharing is caring!

Growing up, Krab Quiche was a spring staple in our house. I didn’t appreciate as a kid, but as an adult, I crave it every year. Using flaky imitation crab meat gives the quiche a great texture and flavor while keeping it budget friendly. It’s also a fantastic recipe for those with shellfish allergies since it contains no actual crab.

Ingredients for Krab Quiche

1 cup milk
4 eggs
1 tsp Old Bay Seasoning
8 oz Swiss cheese, shredded
1 pkg Imitation crab, drained and chopped
1 tsp olive oil
1 small bunch of green onions, sliced
1 unbaked pie shell

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Heat olive oil in a small pan over medium heat. Add onion and cook onion for 2-3 minutes until it’s softened. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 5-10 minutes.

In a large bowl, whisk eggs, milk and seasoning together. Stir cooked onion, cheese and imitation crab into egg mixture.

Tips on Krab Quiche

  • Any type of dairy milk will work here – Nonfat, 2%, Whole – Your choice.
  • The imitation crab gives this quiche a lot of texture. You can use lump crab meat in this dish if you choose, but it will change the texture and taste of the final dish.
