Coach Lora’s Crustless Chive & Bacon Quiche

Chive Bacon Quiche 10.29.2013

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.

Happy Cooking,

Coach Lora Erickson
