These were absoulutely delicious. I used the ricatta cheese, and made nine instead of eight which ended up being the perfect amount using an average muffin pan. Very much ressembles a quiche.

These were absolutely delicious. I used the ricotta cheese, and made nine instead of eight which ended up being the perfect amount using an average muffin pan. Very much resembles a quiche.
I used fresh baby spinach and should have squeezed out more water, because after baking they were soggy on the bottom...but still very good. I followed the recipe exactly (except using cottage cheese instead of ricotta--more protein and less carbs this way) and it works out perfectly. I think next time I'll add sun-dried tomatoes.
There is so much you can do with these little morsels. I use non-fat ricotta cheese or cottage cheese and put in chopped water chestnuts and lower fat bacon bits. It makes a delicious lunch along with a fruit salad.
