Summer Recipe submitted for consideration
This is a delicious, EASY recipe you can make the day of or ahead of busy summer activities and takes hardly anytime to make (about 10-15 mins). The one shown in the photo above has spinach and vegetarian bacon strips added, however this is optional. Hope you try my recipe, as those who know me, know I am not a kitchen or cooking fan, but this is a house staple!
COTTAGE CHEESE QUICHE
2 shallow Pastry Shells (either graham cracker or pie pastry shells. The graham cracker pastry shells add a slight "sweet" taste to the meal, which I have found people enjoy!)
1 16 oz Cottage Cheese, small curd (regular is best, can use low fat but do not recommend large curd)
6 eggs 8 oz Swiss Cheese, grated or cut into small cubes 8 oz Mozzarella Cheese, grated or cut into small cubes
Add the following seasonings to taste: (approximately 1-2 teaspoons):
Dash of salt
4-8 oz frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
4-8 oz Parmesan Cheese
Chopped green onions
Vegetarian Bacon Strips (Morning Star brand is what I use)
Take the above ingredients (except the bacon) and mix them all together in a large mixing bowl blending the items together. Pour 1/2 of the mixture into each pastry shell and spread evenly. Cut the Vege Bacon strips into squares and place them across the top of each pie rotating the direction to create an appetizing look to the top of the pie. Bake the pies in the oven at 400Âº for about twenty minutes and then allow the pies to sit in the hot oven with the heat turned off for an additional ten minutes. Cool and set out for guests. Serves about 6 generous slices per pie. Total prep time 10-15 mis + cooking This is easy, quick and a real crowd pleaser.
