Cheddar and Chile Egg Casserole

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Made this one this morning for breakfast and we loved it! So easy to throw together, and very filling. Would be great for a brunch dish, too. Enjoy! :bcb_up

I've been leaving out the flour and it's fine. I've also been increasing the recipe to 9 eggs, 2 cups of cottage cheese and I've been adding mushrooms, onions and green peppers to it.

 

It makes a huge casserole full (9x12pan) and I get 10 servings out of it.

Thanks, Sailorwoman, :salut "there is your aye-aye, Captain!"

 

Any thoughts on how much; say, chopped spinach or chopped broccoli one would add to this recipe? And my cottage cheese is Cabots and it is very large curds, would you blend it up, or buy a smaller curd kind?

I'd use about a half-cup of spinach or broccoli to start. You might be able to put in 2/3 cup. More than that and it might begin to fall apart, but it would still taste good!

 

As for the cottage cheese, I use Cabot's Fat Free a lot, and I just stir it in the container and put it in without blending.

 

Hope you enjoy it!!

Made this for breakfast this morning. Very good and filling. Needs a bit more spice I think.

Sheri I had made this before but this bumping up reminded me and I took your advice. I made it last night and added some cayenne pepper and just a little salsa. Then I forgot to eat it for breakfast. Will have it for lunch!

I made this this morning. I heated up a can of Rotel and we had some on the top of it. Next time I will put green peppers and onions in when I mix it up


Live, laugh, love and be happy.
