Zesty Egg Bake

Zesty Egg Bake

This quick and easy recipe works well wether you’re serving a brunch or just want something different to go along with your potatoes at breakfast.

Preheat oven to 350˚
Serves 6
Lightly grease an 8X8 baking dish

1 tsp. butter
1 jalapeño, chopped in small pieces
Melt the butter in a small frying pan and sauté the jalapeño and allow it to cool whilst you prepare the other ingredients. Or, if you want to save time, just use a can of diced green chilies or jalapeños).
12 eggs
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
Whisk the eggs, salt and baking powder together in a medium-sized bowl.
Add
1 3/4 cup of grated cheese (I used a mix of cheddar and jack cheeses)
3/4 cup low fat cottage cheese
The sautéed jalapeños

Mix well and then pour into the lightly greased baking dish. Bake for 45-50 minutes (until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean). Serve hot with your favorite salsa.

    • I love that it’s not loaded with butter (the cheese probably makes it rich enough 😉 ). And, of course, it has jalapeños!

    Made this last night and it was a HIT! I am the queen of screwing up recipes, though, and I didn’t realize I needed cottage cheese until it was too late to turn back. Still, it turned out yummy and the whole family ate it! Victory!

    • I’m so glad it turned out and that everyone loved it! I’ve forgotten ingredients before…ok, I do that a lot ;).
