Freezer Friday: Individual Quiche

Welcome to Freezer Friday! Due to the fact I have 4 little ones and homeschool, I need all the help I can find. Simply post a recipe that can be made, frozen and then later reheated(thawed, etc) and consumed. Make sure that you include freezing and reheating instructions in your post. Then come here and add you post (not your blog) into Mr. Linky.
Now for some disclaimers:
If it isn’t a recipe, I will delete it.
If it can’t be made ahead, I will delete it.
If you don’t have a family friendly site, I will delete it.
Now onto the food fun!

Individual Quiche Muffins

These are great. My whole family loves them. Since I have 48 silicone muffin cups , I make either 24 (1 baking sheet) or 48 (2 baking sheets) at once.

Ingredients (per dozen):
16 oz Cottage Cheese
4 Eggs
1/4 cup Milk
1/4 cup Flour
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 tsp Salt
2 cups Shredded Cheese (sharp cheddar, Mexican mix, or whatever you have)
10 slices Bacon (I also use sausage or ham)
1/4 cup Onions (optional, I don’t use them)

Assembly Directions:
Process cottage cheese in a food processor until smooth. Don’t skip this step because is helps make the texture. Transfer to large bowl. In medium bowl, beat eggs. Add milk, flour, baking powder and salt to eggs and mix until smooth. Add egg mixture to cottage cheese and mix. Stir in shredded cheese, bacon and onions.

Freezing and Cooking Directions:
Pour mixture into freezer bags to bake later. Or, pour filling into large greased muffin tins or silicone muffin cups (which is what I use). Bake at 375 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool and freeze in small freezer bags for individual servings. Then take out to thaw and pop in the microwave. If I am heating a large amount I just arrange them in a baking dish and heat in a 350 degree oven for 20-30 minutes.
