Just back from a quick trip to New Orleans. I had so great boiled crawfish. I can only imagine how good those tails would be in this weeks recipes.
1 refrigerated piecrust
3 slices thick-cut bacon, chopped
1/2 cup thinly sliced yellow onion
1 cup fresh baby spinach
2 cups half-and-half
4 large eggs
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon Creole seasoning
1/4 teaspoon hot sauce
1 pound crawfish tails
1 (4 ounce) block Cheddar cheese, shredded
1 (4 ounce) block Swiss cheese, shredded
1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
Preheat oven to 350℉.
Stretch our pie crust to a 12-inch circle. Transfer to a 9-inch deep-dish pie pan, pressing into bottom and up sides. Fold edges under, and crimp as desired.
In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove bacon using a slotted spoon, and let drain on paper towels, reserving 1 tablespoon drippings in skillet.
Add onion to skillet; cook until tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from skillet. Add spinach to skillet; cook until wilted. Remove from skillet, and drain. Pat dry, and chop.
In a large bowl, whisk together half-and-half, eggs, flour, Creole seasoning, and hot sauce. Stir in onion, spinach, crawfish, cheeses, and bell pepper. Pour filling into prepared crust.
Bake until set, 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes, covering with foil after 30 minutes of baking to prevent excess browning.
