Coach Lora’s Crustless Chive & Bacon Quiche
8-12 fresh eggs (med. Size) – use whites only if you want to reduce the cholesterol & fat
¼ cup cut fresh chives (this is easy to grow, I cut it into small pieces using kitchen shears)
¼ cup fully cooked bacon pieces (you could use ham too)
1 cup cottage cheese
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
½ med. size white onion diced
2 cloves minced garlic
½ cup panko bread crumbs (I like the parmesan herb flavor) – if you are diabetic or trying to reduce your carbs omit this
Sea salt & cracked pepper to taste
Saute diced onion in olive oil until clear. In separate bowl combined eggs (I beat them lightly with a fork first) and all other ingredients (reserve some cheddar, and panko for the top). Mix well. Pour into a coated baking dish. Top with cheese. I put the panko on for the last 10-15 minutes only. Bake uncovered on 325 for 40-45 minutes until golden (and it doesn’t jiggle). Garnish and serve with diced fresh tomato. Enjoy.
Suggested side: steamed carrots or cabbage
Notes: If you like to use other herbs like basil and thyme that is really good too.
