I found this recipe for Amish Breakfast Casserole on allrecipes.com. I made some changes to the recipe, but overall, it was pretty good, I would make it again, but with more changes. The recipe calls for 1 pound of bacon and I only used 1/2 pound of center cut bacon. I also used 3 c. of shredded 2% Cheddar cheese instead of Cheddar and Swiss.
Amish Breakfast Casserole (from allrecipes.com, submitted by Beth Notaro)
1 lb sliced bacon, diced
1 medium onion, chopped
6 eggs, slightly beaten
4 c. frozen hash brown potatoes (shredded potatoes)
2 c. Cheddar cheese, shredded
1-1/2 c. cottage cheese (I used 1%)
1-1/4 c. Swiss cheese, shredded
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 13x9x2 inch baking dish. Bake uncovered at 350* 35-40 minutes or until set and bubbly. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting.
My review: I thought this was a little bland. Next time I would add 1/2 t. powdered mustard, 1/2 t. black pepper, and a dash of Cayenne pepper. I'd also add a chopped green pepper, and 2-3 sliced green onions (in addition to the chopped onion.) I think diced ham would go well in this, as well as the Swiss cheese it originally called for. The texture was good, I didn't think it needed any more eggs or cream as some of the reviewers suggested on allrecipes.com. The cottage cheese made the casserole moist. I also needed to cook the casserole for 50 minutes instead of the 35-40 minutes in the original recipe.
Let me know what you think of this!
Happy cooking and enjoy~
