    I only had one and 1/4 cut low-fat cottage cheese so added one more egg and used Alpine cheese that I got on sale for the other cheese.. Also sautéed the onions with slightly steamed chopped broccoli before adding to filling. Used a prepared gluten free crust.. Otherwise followed recipe and was delicious.

    I added lots of Mexican spice and it was delicious. However, it was soupy after baking almost an hour and a half. Perhaps that 3rd egg would have helped? I liked it enough to give it another go though.

    Real men do eat quiche if they are told it is pie. In the 80's there was a popular book entitled "Real Men Don't Eat Quiche" by Bruce Feirstein which was really more a satire of "what real men" should and shouldn't do, so to be on the safe side I called it "Cottage Cheese Pie" until after it was consumed by the men to whom it was served. They liked it except they are onion haters and I couldn't sneak it by them despite finely chopping the onion. Next time I was asked to leave out the onions (maybe go with a clove or two of garlic).

    This is absolutely wonderful, even with low fat cottage cheese and low fat cheese.
