Dungeness CrabMeat Quiche

After a long day at work and it was a Friday, I made a Dungeness Crabmeat Quiche.  You might think big deal but I picked that crabmeat earlier at work.  If you have ever picked crabmeat it takes time. And for us Saturday is a working day.  We usually don’t join the “Friday Happy Hour” Scene at the local pub since we have to get up early.   Remember the early worm catches that delicious seafood!

This is a tried and true recipe.  You might add a little more Old Bay Seasoning or Tabasco if you are looking for an added kick.  It was delicious.  Good thing I doubled the recipe and made 2 quiches since people were coming back for seconds and thirds!

Crab and Muenster Cheesecake

Crab and Muenster Cheesecake makes a beautiful and tasty addition to a party.  It can be made 2 weeks ahead of time and frozen.   Once November 15th hits and the local Dungeness Crab season begins, our time is very limited.  There are days on end that we don’t make it home but rather sleep upstairs the warehouse.  Our local Dungeness Crab Season at the beginning means 24/7.  Its great to be able to pull something delicious out of our freezer especially during the holidays.  Cheesecake doesn’t always have to be sweet.  Cheesecakes don’t always have to be made with sugar.  We are always looking for recipes that will showcase our fresh seafood.   This Crab and Muenster Cheesecake shows off what the Dungeness Crabs can do other than lying on a plate cracked waiting for you!  Its a treat your guests won’t stop talking about for days to come.  After weeks of nonstop working the local Dungeness Crabs everyone will be amazed that we even had time to bake such a delicious cheesecake!  They will be asking for the Crab and Muenster Cheesecake recipe.  All you have to do is make it, plate it, serve it!  What are you waiting for?
