crabplt2I adapted this recipe from one found on   We have had the pie for lunches, Christmas Eve, New Year’s Eve, and now for our Easter breakfast.  It’s very tasty and a nice source of protein before digging into all of the chocolate eggs.

  • 4 oz. sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 6 oz. can fancy white crabmeat, drained
  • 2 Tblsp. dried, minced onion

  • 1/2 cup Bisquick baking mix
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
