Crustless Cottage Cheese Quiches with Bacon, Corn and Cheddar

Crustless Cottage Cheese Quiches with Bacon, Corn and Cheddar

A cross between a muffin and a crustless quiche, these are tasty protein fuel made with AE Cottage Cheese for a "Grab and Go" breakfast or sit-down brunch. The fresh tomato relish makes them company worthy and using a blend of roasted corn and peppers adds a delicious flavor layer.

    For the quiches, sauté the bacon until crisp in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Transfer the bacon to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Pour off all but 1 teaspoon of the drippings, return the skillet to the burner, and add the corn mixture. Cook briefly to thaw the corn. Divide the bacon and corn mixture equally among the muffin cups, then top with a tablespoon of cottage cheese.

    In a large measuring cup with a pour spout, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Pour the mixture evenly among the muffin cups then top each with some Cheddar cheese. Bake the quiches for 30 to 35 minutes or until they’re puffed and firm.

    For the relish, combine all the ingredients in a bowl while the quiches bake. When the quiches are done, remove the pan from the oven and let cool 5 minutes. Remove the quiches from the pan and top with some of the relish before serving.
    Tip:Quiches may be cooled completely and frozen in a resealable plastic bag. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator; reheat in the microwave if desired—remove the foil liner first.
