Crustless Four-Cheese Quiche

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.

    Light and fluffy, I sprinkled a little parsley and paprika on top to add a little color and more flavor. A good dish for brunch with fruit and any sides.

    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.

    Award winning indeed. This recipe was a smash at work. It was moist, flavorful, and had an excellent consistency. I would highly recommend this light and fluffy quiche as the perfect addition to any breakfast or brunch.

    My husband loved it, so did my kids. It was light and fluffy and not at all bland. I highly recommend it.
