Great recipe! I was looking for something different to try with quiche and the cottage cheese and cumin were something I wouldn't have thought of. Thanks! I used red pepper, cumin and salt (1 tsp of each), 2 extra eggs and 1/2 vs 1/4 cup milk, it was enough to fill 6 large muffin cups with no waste. I did not have frozen spinach so I guestimated the same amount of fresh after sauteeing with onion and garlic. The flavor was intense and the the texture just right - 2 things that were missing in my previous egg cups..

Enjoyed these. Am watching carbs so these were easy and quick to make. Substituted dried chiles for the cilantro. Will make again.

These are an excellent little meal!! I had them for dinner with spuds and veggies. I followed the recipe but it does lend itself to unlimited varieties. And to boot, the left overs are really good cold as a snack. Thank you Blink.
