South of the Border Egg Casserole

This is another really yummy breakfast recipe. While I am not making this recipe this weekend, it's one of my favorites. My husband makes it without the flour, and butter, and adds lean ham cubes.

It is seriously awesome...

SOUTH OF THE BORDER EGG CASSEROLE

1 dozen eggs
½ cup flour (Richie leaves this out)
1 tsp. baking powder
½ cup butter or margarine (Richie leaves this out
3 cups shredded Jack cheese (Could use reduced fat or fat free if you wanted to)
1 24-oz carton cottage cheese (fat free is recommended)
1 4-oz. can chopped green chilies, drained
Picante sauce or salsa (optional)

Beat eggs. Stir in flour, baking powder and butter. Add cheese and remaining ingredients. Stir well. Pour into greased 13x9x2 baking dish. Bake uncovered at 400 for 15 minutes. Reduce to 350 and bake for 30 minutes more or until bubble and golden brown. You can prepare the night before and allow 10 extra minutes baking time.
