I have loved seafood since I was very small. When I was two years old, Mother and Daddy moved with me to New Orleans, LA for Daddy to work in the shipyards during WWII. He worked a night shift and would meet the shrimp wagons on the street on his way home. He often brought fresh shrimp home which Mother cooked for his “supper” after work. But this was my breakfast time and I had shrimp for breakfast! Now, most of my family loves any kind of seafood, especially shrimp and crab. Living on the Texas Gulf Coast helps as well! This pie is made from tender lump crabmeat and tastes like crab cakes!
- 1 lb. lump crabmeat
- 4 eggs
- 2 Tbsp. flour
- 1 Cup mayonnaise (I use the lighter Mayo with Olive Oil)
- 1 Cup Milk
- 8 oz. shredded Cheddar Cheese
- 8 oz. Shredded Swiss Cheese
- 1/2 cup finely chopped onion (white)
- 1/3 cup diced green bell pepper
- 2-ounce jar pimientos
- 2 Nine Inch Deep Dish Pie Shells
- 1 finely chopped jalapeno
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine eggs, flour, mayonnaise, and milk in a bowl and mix well. Without breaking up the crab lumps, gently stir in the rest of the ingredients and set aside. Bake pie shells at 350 degrees for 5 minutes, remove from oven and spoon crab mixture evenly into pie shells. Bake at 350 for 50 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
