    Loved the cottage cheese in this!! Never thought of adding cottage cheese in a quiche and loved it!! Used Costco precut broccoli and used dried dill (will totally make it with fresh next time!). Thanks ;)

    This was very tasty and I enjoyed it. The amounts in the ingredient list are a bit vague - I used 1 1/2 cups of chopped broccoli and apprx 1 1/2 cups of chopped onions. For the cheese I used Lite Havarti and cut if back to 3/4 cup putting it on top for the last 15 minutes of baking. Very nice flavor. For the fresh dillI used 4 cubes of quick frozen chopped dill (4 tsps) It all came together well and easily serves 4

    This was really good. I didn't make the recipe exactly as written though. I used what I had on hand. Ricotta cheese was substituted for the cottage cheese. I didn't have fresh dill. Instead of dill, I seasoned with some fines herbes. It was yummy! Next time I'll add some sliced mushrooms.


I'm a farm girl from Ontario, now living in Newfoundland for 27 years and love it. Lots of fresh air and a beautiful view of the water. Space to enjoy all my flower beds, and friendly people. I love to cook and feed people well, with all my added Newfoundland recipies its no problem. My favorite cook books are a set of Betty Crocker books, 20 in all, which I have had for at least 35 years.
