We love crab, artichokes, and quice, so it was only a matter of time until we combined the three. The result was so delicious, you might want to make a double recipe.
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1⁄2 cup chopped onion
1 stalk celery, finely chopped
3⁄4 cup marinated artichokes, rinsed, drained, and chopped
1 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon bottled hot pepper sauce
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground black pepper
4 ounces cream cheese, cubed
1 9- to 10-inch prepared single piecrust, partially baked
1⁄4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
6 ounces flaked or lump crabmeat
Preheat oven to 350°F. In a medium skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the onion and celery. Cook and stir about 5 minutes or until softened. Add the artichokes; cook for 1 minute more. Set aside. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, cream, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper to taste. Set aside.
Spread the cream cheese cubes evenly in the bottom of the piecrust. Sprinkle the Parmesan over the cream cheese. Spread the artichoke mixture and the crabmeat over the cheeses. Fill the crust with the egg mixture.
Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until just set. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
