  • Author: Marie Bostwick


10 eggs, beaten
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
16 ounces small curd cottage cheese
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 pound Monterey jack cheese, grated
1/2 pound Monterey Jack jalapeño cheese, grated
4 oz can of chopped green chiles
1 pound sausage, ham, or bacon, cooked (optional)


Butter a 9 x 13 x 2 inch glass baking dish with 1 tablespoon butter.  Mix remaining ingredients together in large mixing bowl.  Pour in baking dish, then bake uncovered at 400 for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake for another 30 minutes, until slightly browned.  Cut into squares. Top it off with salsa or guacamole and serve with mimosas!


This isn’t the healthiest. I’ll be honest.  Just remember, this is a dish for special occasions! It deserves to be special.
