Recipe – Carol’s Crustless Crab Quiche

Another recipe stolen from Kudos for Low Carb (no longer there, unfortunately). Only minor variations here:

8 eggs, slightly beaten
2 cans pink crab meat
½ cup heavy cream
½ cup butter, melted
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
½ cup Parmesan cheese, grated
¾ cup yellow onion, diced
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons fresh dill weed, chopped
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon black pepper

I made this with my daughter and we had a great time putting it together. I baked it at 400 degrees for 30 minutes, uncovered. Came out fine and was enjoyed by all. Nutrition Information Per Serving: Calories 467, Fat 36 grams, Carbs 4 grams, Protein 20 grams.

A great induction meal. Reheats nicely.

UPDATE: the quiche is just about gone. It ended up being the choice for breakfast – and the lead member of the Low Carb Confidential Taste Panel, who was in no mood to bestow upon me any complements, told me I should make it again.
