Breakfast After the Boil

It’s crawfish time and we just can’t get enough! We’re already eating crawfish for lunch and dinner, why not breakfast too?

Throw those extra crawfish in a ziplock bag on Good Friday, combine them with a few extra ingredients and you’ve got breakfast covered. Extra bags still left over, no problem. We tried the recipe with boiled, frozen crawfish too and it was just as delicious.

Crawfish Quiche

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 375.



2. Finely chop bell pepper and onion. Saute in butter until golden brown. Add garlic and cook for one more minute.

3. Combine crawfish, cream cheese, shredded cheese and vegetable mixture in a large bowl.

4. Whisk together eggs, cream, and sour cream.



5. Pour egg mixture into the bowl with the crawfish, cheese and vegetable mixture. Gently combine.

6. Salt and pepper to taste. But go light on the seasoning long as your crawfish are spicy.

7. Pour combined ingredients into pie crust.



8. Bake at 375 for 50 -60 minutes.

9. Allow quiche to rest for 5-10 minutes before serving.
