A very tasty recipe, and I didn't miss the crust at all. I used a 6 ounce bag of spinach which I wilted in 1 tsp. of the reserved bacon drippings. I also used reduced fat cheeses, and a blend of ricotta and cottage cheese. I used fresh portabello mushrooms rather than canned mushrooms as well. What a great keeper! Thanks. I'm going to post this at the South Beach Diet Online with your permission.
This was super easy and very good. I made it as a side dish so did not add bacon and had to skip the mushrooms because one guest doesn't eat them. I will make it with everything next time :-)
I've made this twice now and enjoyed it both times. It fits in great with my low carb lifestyle! The first time I made it as written and the second time I used diced ham instead of bacon and regular onion instead of green onion. I do have to bake it about 20 minutes longer than the recipes states.
Yummm! Used fresh mushrooms (sliced portobellos) and fresh baby spinach for this and omitted the olives, as I'm not a fan. Also, we ended up adding a couple of eggs because the cottage cheese I used was a dry, hard-packed block rather than the tub of cheese you can eat with a spoon. When the block was crumbled up it was much less wet and much more voluminous than your average two cups of cottage cheese.
This is a fantastic (and relatively healthy!) recipe. I made few substitutions: I used low fat cottage cheese and reduced fat mozzarella. I used one medium sized sauted onion instead of the green onion, omitted the bacon, parmesan and olives, and added a diced tomato (seeds removed) and some pepper. It took at least 50 min. to bake, and released some water, probably due to the low fat cheeses. Thanks for sharing this gem. :)
Delicious! Used cheddar for the mozzarella, ham for the bacon, and egg beaters. Will make again, thanks!
I made this and took it to work. everyone enjoyed it alot, was gone in no time I doubled and made two. I only put a little bacon in it but added ham because some people couldn't eat bacon. was very good
Loved it! I used fresh spinach, and both white onions and green onions, for both color and flavor, and it was fantastic. I didn't miss the crust and appreciate the lesser calories- great recipe!
Very, very tasty, and it's true - you don't miss the crust at all! The only changes I made were to use fat-free cottage cheese, and muenster instead of the mozzarella only because I didn't have any. Am really enjoying having a piece of this for breakfast in the mornings - will definitely make again.
I left out the bacon (thought I had some, but didn't, bummer) and it was still marvolous. I also used fresh mushrooms and fresh mozzerella cheese, sliced. Next time I will definately have bacon, and I am going to make them in individual muffin tins - a perfect grab and go breakfast!
