    I make this all the time now. Got the recipe on Recipezaar website. Only that site uses only egg whites which is much better for cholesterol count and only 4 tbl of parmesan instead of the cheddar. I skip the mustard, but add a bunch of baby bella sliced mushrooms and it's great for breakfast - 1/25/09

    I used ricotta cheese in place of the cottage cheese and it was delish! We also added some mushroom as another member recommended. This will be added to our regular rotation! Thanks! - 4/24/09

  • used 1 whole egg then egg whites (could also use egg sub to lower the cholesterol and fat), reduced fat cheese, used one shallot instead of onions, no mustard and added mushrooms I cooked in the pan as well, and a pinch of cayenne instead of pepper. Zucchini next :) - 1/30/12

  • I love this. I just made it. Split it up into 2 pie tins and used malawach on the bottom for crust. For this works really well for me that it is higher in protein too. - 3/30/11

    Egg whites instead of whole eggs - beat whites into soft peaks and fold in. Add a whole grain such as cooked oat groats. Add (drained) pinto or great northern beans. Add parsley. Add seasonal vegies (eg asparagus or peas). Dino kale instead of spinach. Skip the cheeses. - 5/29/09

    I love spinach quiches, and this sounds like a good one. Also-- altho I hate to change a recipe before I try it, I suppose I could exchange some grated, drained zucchini for half the spinach. Spinach is very high in Vit K -- a no-no for DH right now because of a medication. It's worth a try. - 5/29/09

  • Very good! I used quark which is a German version of cottage cheese without the lumps, similar to ricotta. I also added a pinch of nutmeg. The leftovers will make good take-along lunches - maybe I'll even have some for breakfast! - 5/17/09
