Frittata, crustless quiche, egg casserole, whatever you call it, it’s delicious, and a great way to enjoy crab meat!
Many of my friends have shared lots of wonderful crab this summer. I love the salty simply goodness that crab meat is.
I made this one in a deep casserole dish.
It takes a little longer to bake it in the deep dish casserole dish, so that it’s set in the middle. A shallow pie plate works great to keep the cooking time down.

Crab and Shallot Frittata Recipe
Crab and Shallot Frittata
- Butter for greasing the pan
- 1 ½ tablespoons panko bread crumbs
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 large shallot finely chopped
- 1 cup 8 ounces shredded mozzarella
- 6 large eggs
- 2 cups whole milk
- 1 cup cooked crab meat
- ½ teaspoon black pepper
- Preheat oven to 425°F with rack in middle. Butter 10-inch glass pie plate or round casserole dish, then sprinkle the pan with bread crumbs.
- Heat a small saucepan over medium-high heat, and add the oil. Cook shallots until softened, about 5 minutes. Spread in dish, then evenly sprinkle cheese on top.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, crab, and pepper, and pour over cheese. Bake until top is golden and custard is set in center, 20 to 25 minutes for a shallow pan, and 30-40 minutes for a deep pan. Allow baked frittata to cool 10 minutes before serving. Cut into wedges to serve. Enjoy!
- Can be served hot, at room temperature, or cold from the fridge.
