Reviews for Crustless Cheese Quiche
"Made this for a work dinner. EVERYONE loved it! It looked a bit "thick" at first, but I trusted it and it was fabulous! My friend who doesn't "do" vegetarian asked if she could take some home for husband to try (and asked for the recipe too!)"
"I've made this before and it was great but this time had to improvise due to ingredients on hand. I was out of cottage cheese and ricotta too, so added a little cubed cream cheese. Plus I only had pepper jack cheese (plus cheddar) so saved my green chilis for another recipe. Also, I added the olives into the dish instead of on top -- either is good. Great recipe!!"
"very cheesy and quite heavy. Omitted chilies and olives and topped with bacon. Also omitted butter. definitely a high fat dish!"
"This was delicious! I used half cheddar and half Mexican blend cheese because that's what I had. It looked like too much filling for a 9-inch pie plate but I thought, trust TOH (and put a sheet of foil on the rack below it). It did fit and did not overflow much - a little splatter - but it was still a little runny after 50 minutes of baking and one hour cooling. Next time I'll use a 10-inch pie plate. And there will be a next time! It was really really easy and good!"
"I have used this recipe for years and always get asked for the recipe whenever I take it to a potluck. I leave out the chiles, olives and tomatoes, adding in some type of breakfast meat most of the time. Doubled it fits nicely in a 13x9 pan and can be put together the night before. Awesome Christmas morning dish."
