Chesapeake Crab Quiche

I'm transitioning into Fall by using my sunflower plates that I bought on clearance from Pier 1, over a year ago.  My Mom always thought sunflowers reminded her of Fall, and I'm listening to her.   I love these clear handled flatware from Ross.  Drinking glasses just have to be canning jars for this homespun table setting.

I made these napkins with the extra fabric from my table runner, and they're tied with burlap ribbon with some sunflowers tucked in.
My faux sunflowers make up the centerpiece topiary, tied with more burlap ribbon.

Back in the summer, I won this fabulous giveaway from  Mary at Home is Where the Boat is!!  Mary has the most inspirational blog and is such a generous person.  I was going to coordinate with Sarah at Hyacinths for the Soul for a party, but caring for my sweetheart took precedence.  Thank you Mary, for the beautiful gift!!  Mary also sent along some culinary lavender, which you can see tucked into the back right hand corner.  Taking a whiff of the lavender is so calming...Ahhh!  You can read about Sarah's giveaway win from Mary here. 


The detail on the Blue Crab Stoneware is just amazing!  I'll be using this beautiful dish for many recipes. 

The delicious quiche recipe was included in the recipe book.  It is sooo tasty!

1 can Bay Beyond Crabmeat
Quiche and spinach salad...YUM!
1 nine-inch pie shell
2 T. onion, chopped
2 T. butter
1 cup heavy cream
3/4 cup Swiss cheese, grated
1/8 t. ground nutmeg
2 eggs, slightly beaten

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Sauté onion in butter.  Whisk eggs, cream and sautéed onion.  Season with nutmeg, salt and pepper (if desired).  Spread drained crabmeat and cheese in bottom of pie shell.  Pour egg mixture over top of crab and cheese.  Bake 30-40 minutes or until golden, 
Optional:  garnish the top with Chesapeake Bay Seasoning. 

Serves 4

  1. Kitty:
    What a great meal! I have a can of crab meat right now that needs to be consumed too! Hubby would love this.

  2. MMMMMMMMMMMMMmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm yummy!

    Love your sunflower plates too- sure add some awesome colour, don't they?

    Funny, I must be tired - when I read "Cheasapeake" my mind's eye saw "Cheapskate."

    LOL. I think I am losing my mind.


  3. Your quiche looks great, Kitty. Love the sunflower plates and your blue and white checked table runner and napkins. Very pretty table, delicious food!

  4. Hey Kitty,
    Sunflowers remind me of fall too although I never have any blooming this late in the season...This looks like a good recipe so I will add it to my Pinterest board...

  20. Sweet table! Love the sunflowers...perfect with the checks.

  21. Sunflowers mean fall to me too and I love the plates you picked up. Such a generous giveaway won and the quiche sounds yummy. I'm impressed with the ruffled pastry around the dish.

  24. I usually just add veggies to my quiche recipe but the crabmeat sounds delicious, Kitty. This is a great idea for Sunday brunch.

  25. Dear Kitty,
    Oh, this really appeals to me. I love crab anyway you can make or serve it. Your top crust came out so beautiful!! That salad looks pretty darn wonderful too.
    Hope your weekend is sunny, Ruthie
