Sweet crabmeat, Swiss cheese and mild green onions combine to make a delicate filling suitable for any brunch or bridal shower.
- 1 refrigerated pie crust (from 15-ounce package), softened as directed on package
- 3/4 cup (4 ounces) coarsely chopped fat-free imitation crabmeat
- 3/4 cup (3 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese, divided

- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1/2 package (4 ounces) cream cheese, cubed

Preheat oven to 400°F. Gently unfold crust onto Pastry Mat; roll to an 11 1/2-inch circle. Press into bottom and up sides of Tart Pan. Prick bottom of crust. Bake 10 minutes; remove from oven. Reduce oven temperature to 350°F. Meanwhile, in Classic Batter Bowl, toss crabmeat, 1/2 cup of the Swiss cheese and green onions with flour; spread over bottom of crust.
Place milk and cream cheese in Small Micro-Cooker®. Microwave 1 1/2 minutes, whisking after each 30-second interval, until smooth. Whisk eggs in Small Batter Bowl. Whisk in cheese mixture and salt until blended. Pour egg mixture evenly over crabmeat mixture in crust.
