Default Crustless Broccoli/Cheese Quiche

Made this over the weekend from a mish-mash of two recipes I had.

tsp margerine
1/4 c finely chopped onion
10 oz frozen broccoli (I used two crowns of fresh broccoli - YUM)

Saute above in non-stick pan until tender. Place onion/broccoli in 9" pie plate sprayed with Pam (I used my stoneware one and didn't have to spray it).

Combine:

2 c egg product (I used 1/2 c of eggs - had these really small farm eggs - and 1.5 c of low fat milk - didn't have skim)
1/2 c Kraft 2% milk cheddar (I didn't have any so I just used a cheddar monterey jack mix I had)
1/2 c low fat cottage cheese
1/8 tsp pepper
(recipe didn't call for salt, but it needed it when finished - maybe a 1/2 tsp? - I had to sprinkle it on before eating)

Pour over onion/broccoli in pie plate. Bake at 350 until golden and center set (about 45-50 min).

Very yummy - getting ready to have a slice now.

BTW - you can freeze quiche and reheat it in the microwave. Would be great to have single servings ready to grab as you ran out the door in the morning to eat at work (what I am doing today).

I think next time, I might add some lean ham to it. I'm sure there are a million variations that would be good. Maybe imitation crab meat!

Enjoy!
