You are thinking, “oh great, just another breakfast casserole” but wait…this is not just another one. It is probably the lightest and fluffiest one I have ever had. Had breakfast at a friends home yesterday and she had made this. She had been to a breakfast where every lady there requested it. And yes, all 6 ladies there yesterday did the same. I don’t like cottage cheese, but didn’t even know it was in it.
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled
1 teas salt
1/2 teas pepper
2 teas baking powder
2 cups grated cheddar or jack cheese
1 4 oz can chopped green chiles
5 slices bacon, cooked an crumbled
2 cups small curd cottage cheese
Blend eggs, flour, butter, baking powder, salt and pepper. Fold in cheese, chiles, bacon and cottage cheese. Pour mixture into a greased 9×12 baking dish.
Bake for 30 min at 400 or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean
Serves 6-9 depending on sizes of portion.
Options, can add mushrooms or spinach to batter.
