Crustless Spinach-Cheese Quiche
My confession is that I love pie crust and I love quiche WITH a crust. However, I'm trying to cut back a bit on lard and butter, so I've developed this quiche that has so much flavor, it hardly needs a crust.
Recipe makes 2 quiches. Hint: cut each quiche into 8 pieces and freeze them for quick breakfasts.
8 eggs, beaten 2/3 cup whole wheat flour Black pepper to taste 12 oz cottage cheese 1 cup feta cheese, crumbled (you can use seasoned feta if you wish) 4 cloves garlic, minced 3 tsp chopped fresh dillweed 1 bunch of spinach, chopped. Stems mostly removed 1 cup lower-fat shredded cheddar (or favorite brick cheese)
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Grease two quiche pans (or pie pans). Combine ingredients and divide between pans. Bake for 25 minutes or until set.
