This Cottage Cheese and Bacon Quiche is one of my favorites.  There are so many different ways to make quiche.  I like this one because it’s different and you can really make it your own.

1 ( 9 inch deep dish) pie shell
1 (16 ounce) container large curd cottage cheese
2 eggs
5 slices bacon
1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
1 cup swiss cheese, shredded
1/2 cup Mexican style cheese, shredded
1/2 cup colby jack cheese, shredded
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Salt to taste
Drain the cottage cheese in a colander. Cook the bacon until crispy and set aside.  Beat eggs, then add cottage cheese. Add salt, pepper and onions to egg mixture.  The following is the way I layered my pie:
1. 1/2 cup shredded cheese in bottom of shell
2.  1 piece of the bacon crumbled
3.  1 cup cottage cheese mixture
4. 1/2 cup shredded Mexican cheese
5.  1 piece of bacon crumbled
6.  1 cup cottage cheese mixture
7.  1/2 cup colby jack cheese
8.  1 piece bacon crumbled
9. Rest of the cottage cheese mixture
10. 1/2 cup Swiss cheese
11. 1 piece of bacon crumbled
(You should have one slice of bacon left over for the top once the pie is cooked)
Cook pie in preheated 350 degree oven 45 to 50 minutes.  Let pie cool before slicing.  Enjoy!
Note:  Use all one kind of cheese or mix the cheeses with any kind you like or have on hand)

    It says 1/4 cup onion, finely chopped in the list of ingredients. Then, it says add the onions to the egg mixture. I use white sweet onions.
