Notes: To thaw frozen vegetables quickly, place in a colander and run hot water over them. Prepare custard through step 3 up to 1 day ahead and chill airtight; uncover and continue with step 4 (bake 10 to 15 minutes longer).

  • 10 large eggs
  • 2 cups small-curd low-fat cottage cheese
  • 2 cups shredded jack cheese (1/2 lb.)
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese (2 1/2 oz.)
  • About 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 package (8 oz.) frozen artichoke hearts, thawed (see notes), or 1 can (13 1/4 oz.) quartered artichoke hearts, drained
  • 1 package (10 oz.) frozen chopped spinach, thawed


  1. 1. In a large bowl, whisk eggs, cottage cheese, 1 cup jack cheese, parmesan cheese, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and nutmeg until well blended.
  2. 2. Coarsely chop artichoke hearts. With your hands, squeeze as much liquid as possible from spinach. Stir artichokes and spinach into egg mixture.
  3. 3. Spread mixture level in a buttered shallow, rectangular 2 1/2- to 3-quart casserole. Sprinkle remaining 1 cup jack cheese evenly over the top.
  4. 4. Bake in a 350° regular or convection oven until custard is firm to touch in the center, 25 to 40 minutes. Let stand about 10 minutes, then cut into portions. Add more salt to taste.
