I have always heard all my life: don’t make new recipe until you try it first.
Well this morning I went ahead and did not listen to “try it yourself first”
My daughter and family were coming over for breakfast this morning. I was planning on making two different quiches. I could only find the recipe for one of them. A bit frustrating. So I was breezing thru a recipe book last night before going to bed and found one that was a lot easier to make.
The First recipe I had, had called to put heavy tin foil over crust and bake it before putting the mixture into it. My new recipe didn’t require so much work, which I decide to make. Guess what it turned out just fine. It was a Mexican Quiche.
Here is the recipe and here is the book that it came from:
Ingredients 5 eggs 1/4 cup flour 1/2 tsp baking powder 1/4 cup butter, melted 1 (7oz.) can diced green chilies (mild) 1 cup cottage cheese 1/4 cup chopped onion 1 Tbsp. Butter 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack Cheese ( I used Taco Blend Shredded Cheese)
Directions: Beat eggs lightly in large bowl. Stir in flour and baking powder. Add the 1/4 cup melted butter, chilies and cottage cheese. Saute onion in the 1 Tbsp. butter; add to mixture, along with cheese. Combine just until blended. Pour mixture into a greased 9×9 inch baking dish or pie plate and bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and continue baking about 30 minutes. Cut into small squares or wedges and serve hot. Makes 6 servings.
Note: I placed a cookie sheet under my pie. I used a store bought deep dish pie crust and cooked it in there. My family loved this.
Hope your family will too. Happy Holidays and hope you have a safe and Happy New Year.
