Cheese Quiche

Every once in a while I'll make a quiche and eat it for breakfast or lunch all week. Mainly because (you guessed it!) no one else in the family likes it. But that just means more for me!

Cheese Quiche

2 cups (16 cups) 4% cottage cheese
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese or mozzarella
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Pepper-Jack cheese
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
4 eggs, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
½ cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

In a bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Combine flour, baking powder, pepper and salt; add to the cheese mixture and mix well. Transfer to a greased 9-in. pie plate. Bake at 400° for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350° and bake 30 minutes longer or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.

Of course, you can use any combination of cheeses you like. I prefer the bite that the pepper-jack gives, but you can mix and match your favorites easily. Another version of this that I like is to use Swiss in place of the jack cheeses, adding in chopped green onion.
