Crab pies


2- 9-inch deep pie crusts (baked 3 minutes and cooled)
1 pound of lump crab meat
4 eggs
2 Tbsp. flour
1 c. mayonnaise
1 c. whole milk
8 ounce shredded Swiss cheese
8 ounce shredded Cheddar cheese
2 tsp. Old Bay seasoning
1 tsp. finely chopped onion
1 Tbsp. finely chopped green pepper
(Note: Backfin is fine to use for this recipe. The lump is expensive so it is not required.)


Step 1: Ready the oven and preheat to 350 degrees F.

Step 2: Bake the crust in the preheated oven for 3 minutes. For this recipe, I use Pillsbury pie dough. Spray the pans with Pam spray to prevent the dough from sticking.

Step 3: In a medium bowl, add the eggs, milk, and mayonnaise and stir until well-mixed. In the same bowl, add in 1 tsp. of old bay, cheese, onion, and pepper. Mix until all ingredients are incorporated.

Step 4: Add the crab meat and fold. Prevent the crab meat lumps from breaking up. Pour in the mixture into 2 individual pie crusts. Top with additional Old Bay seasoning for additional flavor.

Step 5: Place in the preheated oven and bake for 50 minutes at 350 degrees F. Use a knife or toothpick to know the doneness of the pie. If it comes out clean after pinching through the middle, your pie is ready. Try to check after 40 minutes to avoid the pie from burning.

Enjoy !!
