These crustless cottage cheese quiches are simple to make and vegetables can be interchanged with what you have. If you want a knock off of the pricey souffle sold at a local cafe chain, just add puff pastry to the bottom of a pie tin.

  • Combine eggs, cottage cheese, and milk in a blender or Vitamix®. Blend on low speed to combine, 1 to 5 seconds. Pour mixture into a medium mixing bowl.

  • Add broccoli, Colby-Monterey Jack cheese, and bell pepper to cottage cheese mixture; add garlic salt and pepper. Stir to combine.

  • Divide mixture evenly between the prepared muffin cups.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a knife inserted into the center of a quiche comes out clean, about 30 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

You can also make this using two 5-inch pie tins.

Feel free to add cooked sausage, bacon, etc.
One of my favorite combinations is chopped chicken, spinach, and mushrooms.
I also love bacon, spinach, and broccoli.
The cheese can also be interchanged.

I read the reviews n made a cpl of adjustments. But I LOVE this recipe!! Oddly I like quiche but don’t love too much egg, so I added lots of stuff so they were barely held together by the egg. I used broccoli, mushroom, onion n ham. To hold everything, I used about 1.5 of all ingredients. 6 eggs because they were small for being called large, and someone else said they might use 4 next time. And 1.5x the cheese, milk, spices, etc. I only had almond milk so that’s what I put in. I also added the 1/8 tsp cayenne that another person suggested. These were delicious, I’ve told my mom about them, n I’ll definitely make again!! Thanks for sharing the recipe!! Read More

Doubled the recipe and made it in a cake pan (3 qt). Did not use the blender and cut out the cottage cheese and increased the shredded cheese. Added a package of green giant spinach cooked and drained chopped mushrooms baked at 350 for 30 min or so. Very good and makes an excellent make ahead breakfast. Freezes well too. Read More
