Servings: 8 servings
Quiche Egg Mixture
- 6 medium eggs
- 1/2 cup cottage cheese
- 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese grated
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 cups chopped spinach
- 1 zucchini grated
- 1 small yellow onion
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
Preheat your oven to 350º F.
Dice your onions.
Heat a nonstick skillet on medium high heat. Add the olive oil. Sautee the onions for 5 minutes. Next add the zucchini and sautee for 2 more minutes or until there is no water in the skillet. Lastly add the spinach and sautee for 3 minutes. Add the nutmeg and stir. Remove from the heat and let it cool for a few minutes.
In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs with salt, black pepper, the cottage cheese and the vegetable mixture.
Line a 9″ inch baking tin with some parchment paper and add the mixture to it. Sprinkle the grated mozzarella on top.
Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until puffed up and golden brown on top.
Let it cool for 5 minutes before cutting. Serve and enjoy!
Customize your healthy crustless quiche by swapping the filling ingredients. I have tried adding ham, only with spinach or zucchini, use any leftovers of chicken, or whatever veggie you have on hand for the filling. The combinations are endless. I also think that onions and eggs are a great combo!
If you aren't a veggie fan you can leave them out and bake the egg mixture and it will result in a tasty cottage cheese crustless quiche.
This recipe is great to prepare for meal prep. You can also make it using a muffin tin, so you have individual portions, no cutting is required. Cook for 15 minutes approximately.
Storing: You can store it in a glass container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
Reheating: You can reheat them in the oven for 5 minutes at 350º F and add more cheese if you want to!
