I asked…a while back…what types of recipes you’d like to see. You asked for easy…tasty…breakfast…one dish…and I panicked! Was it possible to find a dish that was “All Those Things”?
And then I remembered this wonderful egg dish that was served to us at the Glick Mansion in Atchison, KS. last year…a wonderful Bed and Breakfast in eastern Kansas that serves the most delicious breakfasts. In fact, the owner and chef there was the one who tuned me in to Rhodes Cinnamon Rolls! Bless her heart!
This recipe can be made ahead and refrigerated overnight, then baked the next morning. But so far, I haven’t taken that route as it takes all of 5 minutes to stir up…accelerated if your cheese is already grated! Spiced Bacon and Cinnamon Rolls were served with it and Big Boss and I loved it!!! This is great dish for brunches, lunches and a light dinner. Just throw some fruit on the plate or a maybe some grilled asparagus to make a complete meal. The egg dish covers the protein, dairy and veggie groups…if you count the jalapeños in the cheese as a veggie!!!
German Baked Eggs from the Glick Mansion
6 eggs (beat first then add remaining ingredients)
8 oz Pepper Jack cheese..or Monterey Jack or cheddar or whatever strikes your fancy, or more importantly, is in the fridge!
1 cup cottage cheese
2 Tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 Tablespoons melted butter
Combine all ingredients and pour into a buttered (doesn’t include the above butter. In the microwave, I melt about 3 Tablespoons in the 9″ pie dish that you will bake the eggs in and swirl it around to coat the sides. Then dump the excess butter into the egg mixture.)
Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until slightly browned on top.
When done, let cool a few minutes before slicing and serving.
Next time, I will bake this in a muffin tins for slightly less time…I’m guessing maybe 15-20 minutes. And will also try pouring the batter into one muffin…hole?…and then freeze it for future use.
Theoretically, I could freeze 6-8 of these and then take one out at a time to bake individually… or 2 at a time for BB and me. Or bake a full muffin tin at once and freeze half of them. Then zap them in the microwave.
