The more time I spend in the kitchen, the happier I am! These baked eggs with a true southwestern flavor are perfect to serve when entertaining overnight guests.


  • 10 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 2 cups (16 ounces) 4% cottage cheese
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 2 cans (4 ounces each) chopped green chiles


  1. In a large bowl, beat eggs. Combine flour, baking powder and salt; stir into eggs (batter will be lumpy). Add cheeses, butter and chiles. Pour into a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 30-40 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting.
