We enjoyed a hearty breakfast bake 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 near 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.

    "Served this for guests and everyone enjoyed it. I used hot turkey sausage instead of bacon and Monterey Jack cheese instead of Swiss. I seasoned the eggs and threw in some red bell pepper because I had it on hand. I made it the day before and did not thaw the hash browns per another reviewer's suggestion. Worked great. Next time I'll add some diced green chiles or hot peppers to spice it up a bit more. Really good!"

    "I made this for Saturday dinner and my son and I like it. I substituted sausage for bacon. The next time I think I might add green pepper. Definitely a keeper."

    "I made this and it was a huge hit. Substituted sausage for bacon since I didn't have bacon. Added chopped up red pepper instead of onions as well. Served with homemade biscuits and fruit. Will make again."

    "This is one of our favorite recipes. We like it with ham...good way to use leftovers. I'm going to do what one other reviewer did, and try ricotta cheese this time, since I have some I need to use. Thanks for recipe."

    "Cooking 1 pound of bacon and a medium onion together does not work. Onion burns before the bacon is crisp (on medium heat). Do them separately or start the bacon well before adding the onion!"
