Crustless Broccoli and Cottage Cheese Pie
70 mins (prep 30, cooking 40)
13 ingredients
4-6 servings
My second entry into the broccoli quiche category...this one is from Vegetarian Pleasures. Breadcrumbs in recipes always confuse me, I'm not sure what I'm being asked for. In this one, you want to make a slice or two of toast, let it (them) cool, and give a buzz in the food processer. This can be made up to 8 hours in advance-cover and chill the crust and filling separtely. Have not done that, so I could only guess how you might need to adjust the baking time; maybe another 15 minutes? I don't know why it's called crustless, it has a crust, just a thin one. Anyway, it's yummy. I've had no problem using lowfat/non-fat milk and cottage cheese. I never use the cayenne pepper, because Mr. B. does not like even a touch of heat, so I don't know how that tastes in there. Hope you enjoy!
