Recipe by The Tiny Chef

My personal favorite side dish to be served during the winter. It's a hearty dish with a delicious custard.

Wowee. This is a truly delicious dish! I served it as a vegetarian main attraction with quinoa pilaf and fresh green salad, and I'm glad because this is really showstopper flavor! I scaled down the recipe for two, and I must confess that I forgot to get boursin so I improvised with sundried-tomato basil feta and a tablespoon of cottage cheese to add liquid. For the egg I used about 4 tsp liquid egg substitute. Perhaps the filling was less "custard"-like, but the flavor absolutely didn't suffer. I'm also thrilled that this was so quick to make. Thanks for posting; this is a total keeper. Made for Healthy Choices ABC.
