Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
3/4 pound mushrooms -- finely chopped
2 tablespoons butter
crushed saltine crackers -- 1/2-2/3 cup
3/4 cup sauteed onion -- or green onion
Monterey Jack cheese -- shredded
3 eggs
1 pint cottage cheese
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Saute mushrooms in butter. Add enough crushed saltines to absorb juice. Press into pie pan. Sprinkle crust with onion. Heap Jack cheese over onion; don't pack down.

Whirl eggs, cottage cheese and cayenne in blender. Pour into crust. Bake at 350F 45 minutes, until a knife comes out clean.

NOTES : A good vegetarian main dish....also goes well with ham.
