Notes

This savory cheesecake is a unique alternative to a traditional quiche and makes a nice entree for brunch or lunch. It's basically a crustless quiche, but more laden with cheese and not so heavy on the eggs. Mine is a recipe adapted from the Greens vegetarian restaurant cookbook. Sometimes I like to punch up the flavor with sauteed mushrooms, minced sun-dried tomato, roasted bell pepper, sauteed garlic and onion, or any combination of the above.
