Baked Bacon & Eggs

Good morning!  I meet with a group of young moms (MOPS) every other Tuesday– and each time we meet they fill tables with eggs, muffins, fruit… It’s a breakfast banquet.  Last week, this is was my little contribution.

It’s my go-to egg dish–So easy– and you can change it up.  Take out the bacon & chilis and substitute any omelette-ish ingredient you are partial to– ham, mushrooms, avocado, peppers, spinach, broccoli, sausage…  It can be different every time.  The secret ingredient here is cottage cheese– makes it creamy and smooth! I hope you like it.

BAKED BACON & EGGS
6 strips of bacon
5 eggs
1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
pinch of salt
1 cup small curd cottage cheese
2 cups grated cheddar (I used colby jack)
4oz. can mild green chilis

Cook the bacon until it’s crispy.  Drain on a paper towel and then break it up into small bits.

In a mixing bowl, whisk the eggs until they are frothy.  Then stir in the flour, baking powder, salt, cottage cheese, cheddar, chilis and prepared bacon.

Pour it all into a 9″ pie plate that has been sprayed with cooking spray– and bake in a 400 degree oven for 10 minutes.  Then turn the heat down to 350 degrees and cook for 20 minutes more until the eggs are set and a little browned around the edges.  Best eaten hot from the oven!

  1. I’m going to make this during Christmas week, when family is staying over…I’m sure they’ll love it. The cottage cheese in there sounds great! My daughter and my DIL were both looking to join a MOPS group in their new places of residence. My daughter found a group at church that meets once a week, and they provide child care; she likes that there’s women there both young and (let’s say) more mature. She really enjoys hearing the wisdom of the older women who have already been through raising kids, and are many years ahead of her. My DIL found two different MOPS groups and is going to see which one she can be a part of and contribute at the same time she receives. How wonderful that you get to have a group like this and be part of. I’m sure they appreciate all you have to share with them. 🙂

    • Hey Daisy– so glad they’re finding a good mom community. MOPS is a great chance to fell like you’re mothering along with other women. Our MOPS has a grandma type woman at each table–our job is just to encourage the girls– They’re coming over on the 9th to decorate cookies.
      Hope you’re Christmas ahead is coming along. I have almost nothing done so far… hugs Blog friend.

  2. Rhonda, I’ve been looking for a recipe to make for a few friends in a couple of weeks! We’re hosting an annual Christmas celebration with out of town friends and I’ve been trying to think of a breakfast that I can make for them that I can easily pop in the oven for a Sunday morning brunch. I’m really liking that addition of cottage cheese, too! Bet that gives it such a lovely texture. Thank you for sharing! I hope you had a good trip to see the kids!

    • Hey Jasmine– hope it works well for you. It is quick and yummy. Don’t you love all the people in and around for Christmas? We’re having a brunch this Saturday for friends– and I’m thinking about what to make while our kids are here over Christmas for several days. Love it! Hope you time with friends is the best!

    • Hey Kat- I didn’t really think of the cottage cheese– just copied the recipe of the eggs we had at my buddy Sally’s house. But I like the recipe because you can change it up so many ways– and it’s quick.

    • Hey Sheila!! how fun to hear from you! I think 2 recipes would fill a 9″x 13″ but it might be a little thin. If you have a smallish 9″x 13″ or used 3 recipes to really fill it up! Hope you have the best Christmas with your dear family– are you the cook?? the hostess?? I know it will be a sweet time for you all. Christmas blessings friend!

  3. Looking forward to trying this out! Something that will suit everyone in my family. Thanks for sharing it Rhonda 🙂
