This is another great recipe from my friend, Jackie. We multiplied it by 11 and served it for brunch at our church's 100th Anniversary Sunday. We omitted the chilies, but added cubed ham. It's easy and delicious and everyone loved it! You can omit the butter, as well, or reduce it. For the big recipe that we did I added just 2 cups. I've made it in the original size without any butter and it's still rich and yummy. Make it the night before if you want, pull it out of the refrigerator in the morning and bake.
- 12 eggs
- 1⁄3 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2-1 teaspoon pepper
- 2 cups cottage cheese
- 1 lb grated cheddar cheese
