Amish Breakfast Casserole - Breakfast Recipes

Bacon and cheese are two of my favorite things in life and since bacon was on sale this week, I just had to make something with it.
Wha la! Amish Breakfast Casserole.
This casserole is hearty and satisfying due to the hash browns and 3 kinds of cheese. It smells lovely baking in the oven. The bacon, onion, and eggs give it that "special breakfast" flavor.

Variations: If you’re an egg lover, add an extra egg. This recipe also works great with crumbled breakfast sausage.

1-1/2 cups (12 ounces) 4% cottage cheese
1-1/4 cups shredded Swiss cheese
1/8 tsp black pepper
In a large skillet cook bacon and onion until bacon is crisp; drain.
In a large bowl, slightly beat the eggs. Mix in the hash browns, 3 cheeses, and pepper; fold in the bacon and onion mixture. Spread in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting. Yield: 12 servings.
