This review is just of the egg mixture--I was looking for an egg/cottage cheese mixture for a very particular person and this was perfect. I made one serving. I skipped the mustard and chili, but used the suggested veg and put the whole mixture in a gratin. It puffed up like a souffle and was done in about 30 minutes. The proportion of egg to cheese is just right and the vegetables retain just the right bit of crunch. Excellent!
