Okay, so I ain't Oprah, but a girl has her favorite things....right?
Well, this quiche is one of my favorite recipes - very quick and easy, and again...this girl LOVES her eggs and cheese!
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 tbsn buttah
2 garlic cloves, minced
16 oz. cottage cheese
2 cups shredded low-fat cheese (I use Colby/Monterey Jack)
6 egg whites
1 small can diced chiles
1/3 cup flour
pie crust (optional)
Makes 2 quiches (6 slices per quiche)
Approx. 265 calories per slice
(*the nutritional information accounts for the pie crust)
Cook onion and butter in small skillet. When fragrant, add in garlic cloves and cook on medium-low heat for 2 minutes. In large mixing bowl, add in all ingredients minus two egg whites. Mix together, and add in onion/garlic mixture. In smaller bowl, whisk two egg whites together until stiff peaks form and slowly fold into cheese mixture. Poor mixture into two separate pans. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes, then bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes. Let stand for at least 5 minutes.
I've made both quiches and frozen one of them, and it keeps very well. Crust gets a leeeettle soggy, so this time I made one without the crust - perfect!
What are some of your favorite recipes/things to make? I like things that are quick, easy, and have a (relatively) short ingredients list. ;-)
