Crustless Ham & Spinach Quiche Recipe

I found a recipe somewhat like this on another blog over the weekend, then tweaked it to suit our tastes as well as what we had on hand. It was a huge hit and the family has requested it again ASAP!

What You Need:
3/4 cup cubed ham

1/2 cup chopped onion

1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

2 large eggs

2 large egg whites

1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend, separated in 1/4 cup and 3/4 cup

3/4 cup cottage cheese

1/2 cup evaporated milk

1/2 cup all purpose flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 cup fresh baby spinach leaves

What You Do:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add ham, onion and pepper to pan and saute 4 minutes until ham is lightly browned.

Spray a 9-inch pie plate with cooking spray. Sprinkle 1/4 cup Mexican blend cheese in pie plate. Top with ham mixture.

In a large mixing bowl, gently whisk together the eggs, remaining cheeses, cottage cheese, and evaporated milk.

In a small bowl, stir together the flour and baking powder. Add flour to egg mixture and gently stir in. Add spinach to egg mixture and gently mix in.

Pour the egg mixture over ham mixture in pie plate. Bake for about 45 minutes, until a knife inserted in center comes out clean.

This sound really good and I like the idea of making it without a crust!
