My husband is a real meat fan-but this luscious quiche is one meatless recipe he loves. In fact, he'll even go to the store and bring home Jarlsberg cheese as a hint that it's time for me to make it.

"I used muffin tins (lined with silicone cupcake liners) to make individual servings. So fluffy and moist. A bit salty, I might experiment with reduced-sodium cottage cheese next time."

"This was very very cheesy and tasted more like egg and cheese for breakfast. It did taste very good with side of vegetables"

"We love it! It's super easy, it has become one of our favourite light suppers. I like to try different cheese or flavoured cream cheese, and occasionally toss in some tomato trinity mix or a pepper mix for colour and flavour."
