OHHHHHHHHHH this looks delicious!!

Thank you for posting the "base" recipe! I love this type of easy recipe for a really good base of something that I can play around with flavorings.

I love ricotta... its got a nice balance of fat and protein.

I finally got around to making this yesterday and it was delicious! I made mine with fresh tomato and chives and served with a side of thick cut bacon for brunch. The leftovers are good too! Thanks!

I made the ricotta pie yesterday, using the base ingredients. I used onion, zucchini and asparagus for the vegetable component, and diced turkey and ham for the meat portion. I used a combination of cheddar and mozzarella for the shredded cheese. It was/is wonderful. Unfortunately, my teenage son thinks so too, so am unsure how much I will actually get!

I made the spinach one for dinner last night. At first dd, 14, didn't want a part of it, until she tasted it, that is! It was fantastic! She has been nagging at me to make stuffed noodles with the ricotta filling. This tasted just like the filling without having the carby noodles. I will definitely be making it again!

Hubby and I love quiche - and we are always open to new ideas. Last week, I tried my hand at making home made cheese. Nothing fancy - a gallon of milk, some vinegar (apple cider) and, voila, home made cheese. With some of that cheese, I made Lauren's ice cream (chocolate) which was extremely nommie, and tonight used the rest of it in place of the ricotta called for in this recipe. I did make KevinPa's pie crust recipe, using his cake and cookie mix, so it was a ricotta-ish type of quiche.

This was absolutely scrumptious, and is definitely a keeper. Pix attached of my effort.

Could you give directions on how you made your cheese? Also when finished, does it taste like ricotta? farmer's cheese? cream cheese? Cottage cheese?

I heated a gallon of whole milk to 180°F, stirring continuously to prevent the milk from scorching, and at that point poured in a 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar - I took the milk off the heat. I stirred the mix and curds formed. I lined a colander with cheesecloth and, because I wanted to save the whey, I put the colander in a bowl. Poured off the whey, tied up the four corners of cheesecloth and let hang until it stopped dripping.

I found there were lots of ways to make different cheeses by Googling. This was my first attempt and it turned out very well. Hubby says it tastes like farmers cheese.

Ilove this recipe for work weeks. Real easy to cut a slice and take to work to heat up (or um eat in the car cold). I've made it many times, almost always with different veggies and cheeses, sometimes with bacon or sausage. Tasty.

I had some ricotta that I needed to use up, so I went searching for recipes and this one came up. I almost wasn't going to make it because it has been so warm here, I didn't really want to turn the oven on, but it had such great reviews and I had the stuff to make it, (and air conditioner running) LOL..so I decided to make it anyways. All I can say is YUMMO! I am so glad I decided to try this, It's easy and delicious!! I know what I will be eating for breakfast all week. The best part is how versatile this recipe is. I made it exactly as OP posted but I will be trying the other variations, for quick lunches & dinners too. Thanks Op for posting this awesome recipe!!

Better then Quiche, Ricotta pie

Pre-heat oven to 350*

Spray an 8 X 8 Glass pan with Pam.




4 eggs
15 oz container of ricotta
2 cups of Mozarella cheese
1/4 cup of grated parmensan cheese
Small onion chopped and cooked in butter
salt and pepper (add to the onions as you cook in butter)
6 slices of cooked bacon
2 table spoons of dried parsley flakes

Mix the eggs, Mozarella, parmensan, Parsely flakes and ricotta. Cook the onions in butter (salt and pepper to taste) until the onions become translucent. Add to the egg and cheese mixture. Cook up 6 slices of bacon. Dry on a paper towel and crumble them. Add this also to the mixture. Spoon the mixture into the prepared glass pan. Bake at 350* for about 1/2 hour. Until the top is a light brown and the "Pie" is firm. Slice into 6 servings.


I have also made this in the Giant Muffin tins (got the Idea from one of George Stella's books). These refridgerate very well and they re-heat beautifully in the microwave.

Great for breakfast and it's a wonderful dinner if you just have a salad with it.
Tooter...I couldn't PM you with this post as I tried...I made this today for the first time and enjoyed it...Is it supposed to be kind of dry or did I do something wrong? I added dried minced onions instead of the onion/butter mixture and cooked it 5 minutes more than you suggested...could either of those have caused the dryness?...thanks!
