I Heart Cheese

Cheesy grins, cheesy movies, cheesy cheese! Yums. Last night I went to a birthday party and brought a Mexican Quiche to snack on. I've never made it before so I was really nervous that I was going to accidentally feed my friends raw egg and then they would get some creepy egg-borne diseases. In the end it was fully cooked and stuffed with over 4 pounds of delicious cheese. As I've said before on this blog, I'm not exactly a chef so this recipe was simple enough for me to tackle. The quiche is really good for breakfast too!
I'd share pictures of the night outside my house but I haven't felt like lugging my camera out with me on the weekends because I don't want it to get stolen, it's really heavy, and everyone thinks it annoying when you blind them with flash. I can give you a mental image: a good night sitting around the table playing drinking games and catching up. Mexican Quiche
1/2 cup butter
10 eggs
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 dash salt
1 pint of grape tomatoes
1 red onion diced
2 green peppers diced
1 bunch of parsley
2 cups cottage cheese
4 cups grated colby jack cheese (1 pound) --I used the kind with taco seasonings

Melt butter in a 9x13 inch baking pan (I put the stick of butter in the dish and put it in the oven while it heated up
Lightly sautee the onion, pepper, and parsley with a little bit of the melted butter in a large frying pan, the veggies should still be crunchy.
In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs and add flour, baking powder and salt and mix well
Add melted butter to the mixing bowl, leaving the pan buttered
Add veggies/parsley and all the cottage cheese and 3 cups of grated cheeses.
Mix together and pour into baking pan
Slice the tomatoes in half and arrange on top of the quiche, then cover it with the remaining 1 cup of grated cheese
Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 40-60 minutes
