Crabby Quiche


I made a batch of Galveston Crab Dip this week and had this idea to put some into a breakfast quiche, along with some bacon to smooth it out. Mmmmm.  Came out great!  This is OK for  Induction.  I thought I would name this dish in honor of my husband, who is usually crabby when I put many unusual ingredients (like seafood) into his morning eggs.  He actually LIKED this!  But I’m leaving the name as it stands. 🙂

If you don’t have or want to make up the dip first, just use 1/3 c. crab meat and 1 oz. cream cheese, with a splash of white wine (if not still on Induction) and it’ll be fine. 🙂

    I have shared this many many times at potlucks and on social media. This is a TOP NOTCH recipe. I get raving reviews every time I share it.

    1. I’m delighted it has been so well-received in your world, Fawn. It was one of my very first low-carb recipes to create/share here. I love making this for overnight guests at breakfast and as you say, everyone loves it!
