Corn Quiche

Corn Quiche

Quiches are the perfect holiday food: they’re quick to make, delicious any time of day, and make a great choice for bringing to potlucks and parties.

At this winter solstice time of year, quiches, with their round and golden sun-like appeal, are great ways to celebrate the longer days that follow the shortest night of the year.

Cooking oil spray
1 tablespoon olive or vegetable oil
1 small onion or 4 shallots, chopped
1 ½ cups low-fat milk
1 cup cottage cheese
3 eggs
1 ½ cups corn kernels (thawed and drained thoroughly if using frozen)
½ cup grated Cheddar cheese
¼ teaspoon ground mace
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1. Preheat oven to 425. Lightly spray 9- or 10-inch quiche dish with cooking oil (or use a 2-inch-deep pie plate)
2. Heat the oil in a skillet and saute onion for 2 minutes. Place in a large bowl.
3. Add milk, cottage cheese, and eggs and beat together.
4. Stir in corn, Cheddar, and spices.
5. Pour filling into quiche dish or pie plate and bake for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 and bake 30 minutes longer, until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

Let cool for about 10 minutes before cutting into wedges.

Serves 4 – 6.

Variation: add half a red or green bell pepper, chopped, to onion and saute. Substitute chili powder for nutmeg.

This looks really good! I think I would substitute cayenne pepper for the nutmeg for a little heat. I saved this to my recipe file.
