My family loves this but it never seems to be done in 35-40 minutes. My oven is set at 350 what am I dining wrong? Any suggestions?

This recipe has great reviews because it is a great recipe! So simple and easy yet so delicious! I just added a touch of salt and pepper. Perfect for brunch!

I have made this several times. My family loves it. It also reheat and freezes well. I’ve made it with different kinds of meat and cheeses. Very easy to make. I’ve made it where I prepared it and baked it right away, and I’ve made it where I prepared it put in the refrigerator and baked it the next morning. Both ways are great.

I've made this same recipe but use a roll of sausage instead of bacon. And I use shredded mozzarella cheese instead of cottage cheese.

This was great. I did add salt and pepper and reserved some of the cheese for the top.

My family and friends love this recipe. It's easy to make and versatile. Sometimes I use ham or sausage instead or add veggies like peppers or change out the kinds of cheese. Just depends on what's in my refrigerator. Its a go to favorite recipe to bring somewhere or eat at home.

Before I retired I frequently add this casserole for a morning treat for my coworkers and occasionally sent it with my hubby to his job! Everyone loves it even folks who cringe when you mention cottage cheese! It really does just melt right in. I usually use build pork sausage like Jimmy Dean because you can get it together without the mess of cooking up bacon! And I increase the amounts of most everything when taking to a group...exact amounts have never seemed to be too important...the outcome is always great! Like some others commenting, I’ve frequently added diced sweet peppers. I also make a smaller version in a skillet and bake that for just us at home! Try this one, I’m sure it will become one of your faves too!
