This recipe has been in our family for so many years, I no longer remember where it came from. It's easy and quick and people seem to really enjoy it.

My family also has this recipe but it's slightly different: the cottage cheese is onion-chive variety and there is no fresh onion. The 1/2 cup of grated cheese is swiss. Instead of two eggs there are four eggs plus 1/3 cup half and half.
