You can add other meats or veggies to suite your taste, and this quiche can be baked with or without pie shells. My whole family (ages 65 to 1) love this quiche! Sometimes I add a small package of chopped ham to the recipe.

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Whisk the flour, baking powder, and salt together in a small bowl; set aside.
  2. Beat the eggs in a mixing bowl until smooth. Whisk in the flour mixture until no lumps remain. Stir in the Colby-Monterey Jack cheese, cottage cheese, spinach, green chiles, and melted butter until evenly blended. Divide the mixture between the pie crusts.
  3. Bake the quiches in the preheated oven for 15 minutes at 400 degrees F (200 degrees C), then reduce the temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Continue baking until the quiches are lightly browned and a knife inserted into the center comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes.

I have made several great quiche's from allrecipes and this is by far the favorite. I have breakfast each Sun. a.m. with my adult children and their friends, and I followed this recipe exactly, except I used fresh spinach and sauteed' it with a tad of sweet onion. This recipe is much lighter having less cheese then the others I've made. My husband even said, "D, this was a great breakfast"! now I was happy to get that compliment. Also, I made homemade hashbrowns to go with it. Great success. Thanks.

Excellent. I took this to a breakfast potluck at work -- and it received rave reviews. Sets up well. I squeezed the liquid out of the spinach b/c I was worried about this. I halved the recipe to eat at home w/ good results too.
