Breakfast Egg Bake
  • 12 eggs, well beaten
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ cup butter, melted*
  • 1 pint cottage cheese
  • 1 pound grated mozzarella cheese**
  • 1 (4.5 ounce) can green chillies
  • optional mix-ins:
  • diced ham (I added this in the photos)
  • crumbled bacon
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Mix eggs, salt and baking powder together with a wire whisk or a hand mixer.
  2. Stir in the butter, cottage cheese, mozzarella cheese & green chillies. Add additional mix-ins if using.
  3. Pour into a 9x13" baking and and bake for 35 minutes or until slightly brown on top.
* I have made this with only a ¼ cup of melted butter and it worked as well. If you want to reduce the butter, feel free.
** If you want to use cheddar cheese or monterey jack cheese or a combination of cheese in place of the mozzarella you can.
