I admit I've never made this as it's written, but I've changed it many times. Try throwing in chopped broccoli or different cheeses. Almost all amounts can be changed and it still works--more or less cheese, eggs, and any veggies you add. This has become one of our staples, especially as meat prices go up and we look for other proteins.

Brilliant recipe! May I suggest blending the cottage cheese to achieve a more consistent texture. Variation- I usually add 2c. chopped, mostly-cooked vegetable. Change up the cheese or the vegetable...ie Gruyere/spinach, Gouda/broccoli, Muenster/zucchini, Swiss/mushroom, or Jack/peppers. If you make it every Sunday, no one will tire of it. It reheats nicely for breakfast burritos.

Easy, quick, delicious! Nice brunch recipe because you don't have to make it the night before. I do suggest using less salt or omit it.
