    By cutting out the crust and using low and non fat alternatives, this quiche has less than half the calories as your standard quiche!! [​IMG]

    1/2 c fat free milk
    2 tablespoons all purpose flour
    3/4 c egg beaters ([​IMG] that's what the recipe says... I just do 3/4 c eggs, beat)
    1 c low fat cottage cheese
    2 oz reduced fat cream cheese, cut up
    1 c (4 oz) shredded sharp chedder
    1/2 teaspoon sugar

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk milk and flour. Whisk eggs, cottage cheese, and cream cheese (mixure will not be smooth). Stir in chedder cheese. Add sugar and 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper. Pour mixture in 9 inch greased pie plate. Bake 45-50 minutes, or until knife comes out clean.

    Top with fresh salsa. Mmmmmmm.... [​IMG]

    That looks like a very good recipe. I make home made salsa all the time and it would be really good on this. Thanks for the recipe!

    My sister in law actually found that in a magazine! I think it was Cooking Light or something along those lines.
    I think I'm going to try adding some broccoli next time. But I loved how Lori put the salsa on top. It gave it that extra kick.
