"The 'pisxing contest' below is a first for me on this Site. The meal is 'home cooked,' the folks around the table are drinking their coffee, tea or hot choc. Laughter between close to 20 fishermen in my MH. Some at the table, some on the fold out bed (where they'd slept that night or on the floor in sleeping bags. Does anyone care what kind of 'cheese' goes into the thing? Had to jump this to 5 dozen eggs (et all), and what do you have in your coolers to add???? Thank God I carry huge cast iron pans/pots. Three or four Colman stoves making more coffee and side dishes... and bring your own plate/silverware.

Wife/signif-other .. close to 40 bundled up in a 36 degree morning just a tad after sunrise.
Magic Morning for all."

"Do you need the cottage cheese/ricotta cheese at all? What does it add? Thanks, only asking because my family doesn't care for either."

"Katandalan, try using ricotta cheese instead of the cottage cheese. My lasagna recipe uses both, & the ricotta is smoother. My husband doesn't like cottage cheese either, but he'll eat it in baked recipes."

"A really good recipe! I've made a casserole similar to this for Sunday brunch. I use yellow onions and vegetable hash browns instead!"

"This is a family favorite that we've made for years. We use swiss cheese, but it would be delicious with cheddar, as well. Best breakfast casserole ever!"
