Sunshine Baked Eggs Recipe

My son-in-law loves to cook, and he experimented with my old standby recipe for eggs by adding cottage cheese and crushed pineapple. It turned out to be so delicious we make eggs like this all the time! —Jane Zielinski, Rotterdam Junction, New York

"I would never think of pairing pineapple and cottage cheese with baked eggs but am excited to try it out. Using ham sounds like a wonderful spin and I think I'll try using coconut oil in place of the bacon fat for a subtle tropical feel. Yum!"

"At first I wondered about this combination, but now I'm intrigued. It sounds like a Hawaiian pizza in a pan. Ham sounds like a good substitute for the bacon, though I'm a bacon lover all the way."

"To tsuop - Yes, there are 14 eggs, but it makes 8 servings - less than 2 eggs per serving."

"I made this for a spur-of-the moment family brunch. Instead of the bacon, I cut leftover ham into 1/4" cubes, added 2 TBSP melted butter in place of the bacon drippings, added 3 more eggs and the rest of the pint carton of cottage cheese and bked it in a 10 x 10 Corningware dish for 1 hour. It was delicious. Everyone loved it! Had homemade cinnamon rolls, fresh fruit salad and baked french toast. Perfect amount of food for 11 hungry brunchers."
