Looking for something healthy that will satisfy those hunger pangs? This delicious dish is a perfect mix of naughty and nice!


  • 2 unbaked pastry shells (9 inches each)
  • 5 eggs
  • 375ml cups milk
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper
  • 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 340g grated Parmesan cheese
  • 225g shredded Swiss Cheese
  • 3 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 6 to 8 ounces canned or frozen crabmeat, thawed, drained, flaked and cartilage removed

Start by firing up your wood fired oven to its optimum temperature of 450°C and then allow heat to even out and maintain above 200°C. For more information, please refer to our Cooking Techniques Guide.


Line each pastry shell with a double thickness of heavy-duty foil. Bake for 5 minutes. Remove foil; bake 5 minutes longer.

In a large bowl, combine the eggs, milk, salt, pepper and nutmeg; set aside. Combine cheeses and flour; add to egg mixture. Stir in crab and spinach. Pour into pastry shells.

Let the oven cool and bake at 170 degrees for a further 50-55 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting. Serve warm.
