Mmm. Another great way to use the leftover Easter ham.
I love breakfast foods. All of them. And I love to eat them for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. (We had this for dinner). I got this recipe from my mom, who got it from a lady at church. My mom made a few of these for my baby shower last year and they were a hit! The great thing about this is that you can make it into whatever you want. I put ham, broccoli, cheddar cheese, and green onions in mine, but you could really put whatever you want. Sausage, bacon, swiss cheese, mushrooms, spinach, etc., etc. I'm looking forward to making this again and trying something new! If you make it, let me know what you put in it and if it was good!
1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 lb. shredded cheese (I like cheddar; the recipe says jack, but does not specify what jack - colby, monterey, pepper, etc.)
1 lb. cottage cheese
1 cube (1/2 cup) butter, melted and slightly cooled
additional fillings (ham, bacon, onions, peppers, broccoli, etc.)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Beat eggs lightly and everything else. (The recipe suggests about a 1/2 cup of each, but I would add more. Whatever proportions you like). Pour into a 9x13 pan.
Bake 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Lower the heat to 350 degrees and bake for an additional 20-25 minutes, or until browned around the edges and lightly browned in the middle.
I usually cut this in half for us and bake it in an 8x8 pan. If you do this, bake it for about 12 minutes at 400 degrees and then about 15 minutes at 350.
