You all had great recipes last week; thank you ALL for sharing! I can't wait to see what kind of yumminess you have in store this week. :-) Andrea hasn't posted for a while... but if you get a chance, drop her a line and let her know that she's missed.
Now, let's get this recipe party started! This week is Crab & Spinach Quiche. It was served at a brunch I went to last month and is so delicious.
Crab & Spinach Quiche
2 unbaked pastry shells (9 inches)
1 1/2 cups milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
A few good pinches of pepper (about 1/8 teaspoon)
A few good pinches of nutmeg (about 1/8 teaspoon)
1 1/2 cups grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup shredded Swiss cheese (approx. 4 ounces)
3 tablespoons flour
6 to 8 oz. canned or frozen crab meat, thawed/drained and flaked
1 package (10 oz.) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well drained
Bake pastry shells at 400 degrees for 5 minutes after lining with aluminum foil. Remove foil and bake 5 more minutes.
In a large bowl, combine eggs, salt, pepper, milk, and nutmeg. Stir in cheeses and flour until well combined, then gently stir in spinach and crab.
Pour half of quiche mixture into each pastry shell and bake at 350 for 50-55 minutes (until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean). Let set for 10 minutes and serve.
