We enjoyed hearty breakfast casseroles during a visit to an Amish inn. When I asked for the recipe, one of the ladies told me the ingredients right off the top of her head. I modified it to create this version my family loves. Try breakfast sausage in place of bacon. —Beth Notaro, Kokomo, Indiana

Ingredients

  • 1 pound sliced bacon, diced
  • 1 medium sweet onion, chopped
  • 6 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 4 cups frozen shredded hash brown potatoes, thawed
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1-1/2 cups 4% cottage cheese
  • 1-1/4 cups shredded Swiss cheese

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°. In a large skillet, cook bacon and onion over medium heat until bacon is crisp; drain. In a large bowl, combine remaining ingredients; stir in bacon mixture. Transfer to a greased 13x9-in. baking dish.
Bake, uncovered, 35-40 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting. Yield: 12 servings.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • Create a pretty burst of color and fresh flavor by adding a pinch of minced herbs to the egg mixture. Thyme and parsley are perfect candidates; try 1 teaspoon fresh or 1/4 teaspoon dried.
  • Cottage cheese is surprisingly versatile and almost disappears into this dish when baked.
  • Assemble a day in advance, and bake just before serving.

    "Made this for a church pot luck and brought home an empty dish. I did use hot sausage instead of bacon and liked the flavor it added."

    "Made this on a beach trip. Used potatoes o'brien, and added mushrooms, used shredded bacon cheddar cheese and sharp cheddar. This was fantastic! So many different things you could add. Loved it!"

    "I made this as the recipe directed (except I prepared my bacon on a sheet pan in the oven and then added it along with drippings to the skillet with onion), and it was delicious. The first batch went to the kids at church, so my own family requested a batch for home. Simple to prepare. Hearty and Satisfying."
