Blue Crab Pie
Baked in your favorite pie crust, with a simple list of ingredients, Blue Crab Pie is astoundingly delicious. Think crab cake meets quiche. Spend the 90 minutes or so it takes to make (from start to finish), and you will be glad you did. After all, it’s crab. It’s pie. It’s a winner!
2- 9 ″ deep pie crusts (baked 3 minutes and cooled)
1 pound lump crab meat
2 tablespoon flour
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup whole milk
8 ounce shredded Swiss cheese
8 ounce shredded Cheddar cheese
2 teaspoons Old Bay seasoning
1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
1 tablespoon finely chopped green pepper
Preheat oven to 350ºF
Bake your crust for 3 minutes. We used Pillsbury pie dough and it worked out great. We did spray the pie pans with Pam spray to keep the crust from sticking.
It is fine to use frozen deep-dish pie crusts as well.
Combine eggs, flour, mayonnaise and milk, mix well. Add cheese, 1 teaspoon Old Bay, onion and pepper and mix well.
Fold in crab meat and try not to separate the lumps of crab meat too much. Pour into 2 separate pie crusts, sprinkle with additional Old Bay Seasoning.
Bake at 350ºF for 50 minutes or until a knife comes out clean. (Check at about 40 minutes to avoid burning, since ovens vary.)
This pie freezes well and can be easily reheated.
