I had big plans to make it last weekend but... I don't know, something happened and it just didn't work out. You know how these things go. Days went by and I finally remembered I had bought the cheeses specifically for this so I should probably get on with making it.
And that is how we came to have "breakfast for dinner". In order to make the meal not so breakfast-y though I did throw together a side of black beans (butter, onion, garlic, cilantro - easy) and that rounded out the meal nicely.
Here's the super simple and oh, so yummy recipe:
6 eggs, beaten
1/2c pepper Jack cheese, shredded
1c cottage cheese
1/4c all-purpose flour
1/4c green chiles, chopped
1. Preheat oven to 350°.
2. In a medium bowl, combine the eggs, pepper Jack cheese, cottage cheese, and flour.
3. Fold in the green chiles.
4. Pour everything into a prepared 8x8 baking dish.
5. Bake 1 hour, or until eggs are set. Serve warm.
P.S. The leftovers were great the next day.
I spooned some into flour tortillas and devoured them for lunch!
