Crab Pie

Yesterday I showed you how to make a pie crust and this Crab Pie is what I used that pie crust for. This two cheese Crab Pie reminds me of a quiche but with less egg. It is baked in a 9” deep pie plate and with all that crab goodness it disappears fast.

I live up north in the US and the 8 oz of crab cost me $9.00. For those of you that live near the ocean, I’m sure you can buy it cheaper. Regardless, I love crab and it was worth every penny! It holds together very well and would make a great party dish. It can be cut into 6-8 servings!

I adapted this recipe from The Maryland Store recipe.

 

Ingredients

 

70D5C003-3B48-4B81-BF1A-B24D037E299C

Bake the pie crust for 5 minutes in a preheated 350 degree oven.

This is what it looks like when it comes out of the oven.

Let the pie crust cool.

 

In a large bowl combine the eggs, flour, mayonnaise

and Half-n-Half with a whisk.

 

Add all the rest of the ingredients and stir well with a spoon.

Pour the mixture into the pie shell.

Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 40-50 minutes

or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

Ovens vary so watch carefully so it doesn’t dry out.

Mine was done in 40 minutes.

Let cool for 5 minutes then slice like a pie and serve.
