You know there are just some recipes that you want to smack your head and say "Why didn't I think of that?" Really liked this recipe, however I did make some changes. 1.Used Monterey Pepper jack cheese instead of plain Monterey jack cheese. 2. Used season salt, because mine has garlic in it. 3. Not a huge fan of chicken for breakfast so I did some with chunks of ham and some with chunks of beef breakfast patties (similar to sausage patties but made with beef). This will make some quick breakfasts for my hubby and me for the upcoming week. I will come back and edit the review if they don't hold up well in the refrigerator, but I doubt that will be the case. Thanks Kim D for sharing.

I don't usually give five stars, but this deserves it. To make things easier, I used Egg Beaters Southwestern flavor, and omitted the green chilies, salt and pepper called for in the recipe. Even my four-year-old eats this, and it holds its taste pretty well over the course of a few days. Thanks!!

I'm so excited to find this recipe. A bunch of us are meeting for my daughter's 30th birthday this week-end and I think I'll make some of these and have ready for an easy, tasty breakfast. Thanks for sharing. I'll rate after the party week-end. BTW has anyone ever tried freezing these?

These are really good! I made two batches like ratherbeswimmin' did, one the recipe as you suggested for everyone else, and one with a few alterations for me - chopped green onions and chopped bell pepper instead of green chilies, and chopped deli ham instead of chicken. My family loved the original, and I loved the alt. version. Either way, happy tummies all round!

I wasn't sure if I was going to like this because I'm not a big fan of cottage cheese, but these were absolutely amazing! I am starting a low-carb diet and I could definitely eat these for breakfast every day and not get tired of them. So yummy!! Thanks for the awesome recipe!

These are wonderful, Kim. Like little mini-quiches without the crust. Has a nice springy-sort of fluffy texture. I made two batches. One with plain Monterey Jack cheese and the other with Pepper Jack cheese. They do re-heat well after being stored in the refrigerator. Kids, husband, and I voted that we wanted to have these again. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Hope you and your family are safe and sound.
