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
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!
