Sprinkle a can of French fried onion rings on top before you bake. Delish.
Easy and delicious! I often bring this to breakfast potlucks and it's always a hit.
Excellent brunch or pot luck!
I have to admit: this was pretty amazing. However, I would make the following two changes:
1) The fat content is extremely high on this puff and there are easy ways to tone it down. Buy lower milkfat cottage cheese and lower milkfat monterey cheese. This also significantly lowers the calorie count, while not effecting the protein count (which is one of the reasons I love this recipe.)
2) I didn't taste the green chilis at all and I am NOT a fan of spicy food. I used a 4.5 oz can and next time will use closer to 6 oz.
Sidenote: This puff tastes amazing with salsa on top. :)
This is so good that my "picky eater" granddaughter requests it often!
