This Crustless Crab Quiche has a creamy texture and is so flavorful. Easy to make in a pie plate or in a mini muffin tin as appetizers – perfect for a Sunday brunch or party!


  • 2 large eggs , beaten

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise

  • 1/2 cup whole milk

  • 2 tablespoons flour

  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon sriracha sauce

  • 1 cup shredded swiss cheese

  • 6 ounces lump crab meat (or flaked imitation crab torn into small pieces)

  • 4 whole scallions , diced


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9-inch pie plate with nonstick cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, mayonnaise, milk, flour, salt, and sriracha.
  • Stir in the cheese, crab, and scallions.
  • Pour mixture into prepared pie plate (and use a fork to distribute the contents, so you get the goodies in every bite!)
  • Bake until edges are puffed and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, about 40-45 minutes. (If you notice the edges are browning too quickly, tent with foil.)
  • Let stand 10-15 minutes. Slice and serve!


  • This recipe also works great as an appetizer if you need small bites for a party. You’ll need a 24-slot mini muffin tin generously coated with nonstick cooking spray. Prepare ingredients as directed, evenly distribute the mixture among the slots (I like to use a cookie scoop!) Bake at 350 degrees F. for about 35 minutes (or until edges are browned and a tester in the center comes out clean.) They can be served hot or at room temperature.
