I would never think of pairing pineapple and cottage cheese with baked eggs but am excited to try it out. Using ham sounds like a wonderful spin and I think I'll try using coconut oil in place of the bacon fat for a subtle tropical feel. Yum!

At first I wondered about this combination, but now I'm intrigued. It sounds like a Hawaiian pizza in a pan. Ham sounds like a good substitute for the bacon, though I'm a bacon lover all the way.

To tsuop - Yes, there are 14 eggs, but it makes 8 servings - less than 2 eggs per serving.

I made this for a spur-of-the moment family brunch. Instead of the bacon, I cut leftover ham into 1/4" cubes, added 2 TBSP melted butter in place of the bacon drippings, added 3 more eggs and the rest of the pint carton of cottage cheese and bked it in a 10 x 10 Corningware dish for 1 hour. It was delicious. Everyone loved it! Had homemade cinnamon rolls, fresh fruit salad and baked french toast. Perfect amount of food for 11 hungry brunchers.
