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.
