This was amazing! Made a few changes though: sauteed some chopped yellow onion and a few chopped mushrooms in a bit of oil before adding 8 oz of microwaved & drained spinach. Also threw in about 1/2 c chopped sun dried tomatoes. Drained cottage cheese and mixed in with the spinach, then poured the whole thing into a greased pie plate. I sprinkled with about 1/2 c grated asiago cheese and then poured 6 beaten eggs over the top. Baked for about 50 min at 375. The sun dried tomatoes and asiago really gave the dish a lovely flavor.

I made this for brunch today and though the texture and flavor was overall good the spinach taste was a little too strong. If I made it again I would cut back on the spinach. Read More

A delicious non-crust quiche. I followed the advice of an earlier poster and replaced the croutons with a mix of seasoned breadcrumbs plus grated parmesan. Delicious! The only thing I'd add is to leave about 10 minutes after cooking for the quiche to set. Read More

This is great. My husband told me I outdid myself on this one. But squeeze liquid out of spinach, or it will come out when baking. Read More

Great for freezing ahead I allways make 2 and freeze the extra filling in a ziplock bag. On the day we are going to eat it I will defrost it and bake it in my pie plate Read More

I looked at all the diffrent suggestions and just went for it with this recipe. I used Ricotta instead of cottage cheese. Since it was before payay I mixed and matched diffrent cheeses (smoked gouda cheddar and mozerella) till I reached 2 cups. I put it in a store bought roll out crust and added a few cooked slices of turkey bacon in the mix and garlic powder 1 teasp. WOW was it good. Great basic recipe to mix and match. I loved it!

I just loved this. I am a Personal Chef and after a day long cooking session I am too tired to cook. So I tried this but added leftover artichoke hearts (chopped) feta cheese chunks some hot sauce and for the topping used Pringles new Potato Parm chips crumbled up. It is great with tomato/red onion salad and lovely heated up the next morning in the toaster oven for breakfast. Very versitile recipe which I will be using for my clients.

I have been looking for a recipe to recreate the filling in Panera's spinach and artichoke souffle. This is as close as I've been able to get!! I substituted the cheese for a tub of Asiago/Parmesan/Romano blend. A whole tub made it VERY tasty but too salty. I'll do half and half with the cheeses next time. I added chopped artichoke hearts too and two additional eggs. This is a delicious recipe I'll be using again and again! Thanks! Read More

Lovely. I actually made these last night but didn't bake until this morning. Added about 1.5 cloves of garlic along with salt and pepper. The only thing I would change is to saute the green onions and garlic before adding the spinach. Loved the fact that there wasn't a crust! Read More

This was my first time making quiche. I found this recipe to be very easy. I also used lowfat cottage cheese and lowfat cheese instead and it was still very good. Read More
