Directions:

  1. Place the egg substitute, cottage cheese, flour, pepper, and Tabasco sauce in a large bowl, and stir to mix well. Stir in the cheese, sausage, and scallions. Set aside.
  2. Coat a 9-inch deep dish pie pan with nonstick cooking spray. Slice the unpeeled potatoes 1/4 inch thick, and arrange the slices in a single layer over the bottom and sides of the pan to form a crust. Pour the egg mixture into the crust. Spray the exposed edges of the potatoes lightly with cooking spray.
  3. Bake uncovered at 375°F for 45 to 50 minutes, or until a sharp knife inserted in the center of the quiche comes out clean. Allow to cool at room temperature for 5 minutes before cutting into wedges and serving.
