>whitney’s german baked egg casserole

>My other fantabulous sister, Whitney, has a curious fascination with everything German. Yes, we do have strong German genes in our family (as we do Norwegian and Canadian and bits of other heritage as well, i.e. Russian). She also loves to cook and seems to always be having a grand old time in sunny California. What a lucky duck – sunny and warm, even in the winter. Meanwhile, we’ve hit some records with our 75+ inces of snow this winter.

Anyways, she made this egg casserole for everyone at Christmas a few years ago. I have to say, a breakfast like this fills your belly until dinner. And for those wondering what a casserole is – same thing as a hotdish. If you don’t know what a hotdish is, then never mind, it’s really a term known by fellow North Dakotans and Minnesotans.

Whitney’s German Baked Egg Casserole

1 lb shredded MOnterrey jack cheese
1 dozen eggs
1/2 cup melted butter put in 9×13 pan
2 cups cottage cheese
1/4 cup flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tomato, chopped
1/3 finely chopped onion
6 slices of fully cooked bacon
green pepper, chopped
garlic, minced
cooked sausage or ham

Slightly beat eggs, then add the flour and remaining ingredients. Mix well an pour in casserole dish. Bake at 350 degrees until a knife comes out clean in center (approximately 45 min to an hour). Eggs should be firm and lightly brown on top!! Enjoy.
