Hearty breakfast bake eaten during a visit to an Amish inn. When I asked for the recipe, one of the ladies told me the ingredients right off the top of her head. I modified it to use breakfast sausage in place of bacon. From Beth Notaro: Kokomo, Indiana. Originally published as Amish Breakfast Casserole in Quick Cooking May/June 2002.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound sliced bacon, diced
  • 1 medium sweet onion, chopped
  • 6 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 4 cups frozen shredded hash brown potatoes, thawed
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups (12 ounces) 4% cottage cheese
  • 1 1/4 cups shredded Swiss cheese

How to Make It

  1. • In a large skillet, cook bacon and onion until bacon is crisp; drain. In a large bowl, combine the remaining ingredients; stir in bacon mixture. Transfer to a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish.

  2. • Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting.
