Notes










Tips

Expert Tips

Choose the best quality canned crabmeat, such as that labeled fancy for best results. If desired, 1 cup fresh or frozen crabmeat, thawed, drained and flaked, could be used.

Smoked provolone cheese (instead of regular provolone) would add an interesting flavor dimension to the quiche.

The pie crust can be baked ahead.
