|½ cup||Butter melted|

|Freshly ground black pepper to taste|
|1 pounds||Mozzarella cheese; grated|
Source: The Frugal Gourmet: The Whole Family Cookbook by Jeff Smith Whip the eggs in a mixing bowl until fluffy. Whisk in the melted butter, flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir in the cottage cheese, chiles, black pepper and half the mozzarella. Place the mixture in a greased 13x9 inch glass baking dish. Top the remaining cheese. Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 15 minutes. Then reduce the temperature to 350 degrees and continue to bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until the eggs are set and the top is lightly browned. Allow to cool a bit and cut into squares.
**Just a note. I never add all the cheese. My family doesn't like it, and I think it's too much. I end up using about ½ cup of cheese mixed in with the quiche and none baked on the top. I also cut down the butter and use about ¼ cup melted. That seems to be plenty.
