Crustless Cheese Quiche

adapted from a Taste of Home recipe

2 cups small curd cottage cheese
2 cups (8 oz) shredded cheddar cheese
4 eggs, lightly beaten
2 Tbsp butter, melted
1-10 oz pkg of frozen spinach, thawed and drained
1/2 cup chopped, cooked veggies of your choice (I like broccoli)
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
chopped tomatoes for garnish

In a bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Combine flour, baking powder and salt; add to the cheese mixture and mix well. Transfer to a greased 9 inch pie plate. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees for 30 minutes longer or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Garnish with tomatoes.
