No-crust Quiche

Mmm. Another great way to use the leftover Easter ham.

I love breakfast foods. All of them. And I love to eat them for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. (We had this for dinner). I got this recipe from my mom, who got it from a lady at church. My mom made a few of these for my baby shower last year and they were a hit! The great thing about this is that you can make it into whatever you want. I put ham, broccoli, cheddar cheese, and green onions in mine, but you could really put whatever you want. Sausage, bacon, swiss cheese, mushrooms, spinach, etc., etc. I'm looking forward to making this again and trying something new! If you make it, let me know what you put in it and if it was good!

No-crust Quiche

10 eggs
1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 lb. shredded cheese (I like cheddar; the recipe says jack, but does not specify what jack - colby, monterey, pepper, etc.)
1 lb. cottage cheese
1 cube (1/2 cup) butter, melted and slightly cooled
additional fillings (ham, bacon, onions, peppers, broccoli, etc.)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Beat eggs lightly and everything else. (The recipe suggests about a 1/2 cup of each, but I would add more. Whatever proportions you like). Pour into a 9x13 pan.

Bake 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Lower the heat to 350 degrees and bake for an additional 20-25 minutes, or until browned around the edges and lightly browned in the middle.

I usually cut this in half for us and bake it in an 8x8 pan. If you do this, bake it for about 12 minutes at 400 degrees and then about 15 minutes at 350.

Yummy, yum, yum! I gave away most of my ham leftovers, but I think there are a couple slices left. I think I will go and whip this up with some spinach and swiss cheese! I hope it works with gluten free flour, but I am going to try!

I made it for our brunch last week, and was too lazy to go to the store so I used what I had on hand . . . cheddar cheese, bacon, and asparagus. It was tasty!

Thanks for your kneading cheerleading. Haha. I didn't realize I could use my kitchenaid for it, I thought it made a difference in the final product if you kneaded by hand. :) Oh and this quiche looks ah-mazing!! I've never made quiche but I think it is time.

I made it tonight for dinner with some fried potatoes. It was a big hit! I used onions, peppers, mushrooms, zucchini, squash, spinach, and bacon. I also used 3 types of cheese. Thanks for the great recipe and it was very easy to convert to wheat free!

I just made this for the first time, for a pre-Conference brunch with friends. Everyone LOVED it! It was so yummy. I cooked bacon, then sauteed mushrooms and spinach to add to it. Also sliced green onions, cheddar and Monterrey jack cheeses. Sprinkled 1/4 lb of the cheese on top instead of mixing in. It was amazing!!!
