Four Cheese Quiche
This is a favorite at Sunrise Landing Bed and Breakfast on beautiful Seneca Lake. It is different than most traditional quiche recipes and easier (served with a potato side, and sausage or ham).
9 bread slices with crusts trimmed (thin slices – firm, thin, home-style bread –I use Monk’s Bread)
16 ounces ricotta cheese
16 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
10 slices Swiss cheese
Parmesan cheese, dash salt, pepper & paprika
Spread bread in a lightly greased (or sprayed with cooking spray) 9 X 13 glass pan. (I vary the pan size and just use enough bread to cover the bottom, varying the other ingredients, proportionately). Cover bread with ricotta cheese. Spread cheddar cheese on top. Beat eggs with salt and pepper and pour over the cheeses. Cover with the Swiss cheese slices. Cover and refrigerate overnight. When ready to bake, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and lightly sprinkle with paprika.
Bake at 325 degrees for 45 minutes. Let stand 10 – 15 minutes before serving.
