This recipe is great! The recipe calls for the hash browns to me THAWED and the eggs and cottage cheese to be combined in a blender. From some reviews I think folks don t read the instructions well. If the potatoes aren t cooked or the egg and cottage cheese aren t smooth then you need to make this again. Just sayin Read More

I also found that the frozen hash browns weren t cook. I even covered it with foil for the entire cooking time then removed the foil and cooked additional 15 minutes and the hash browns were not cooked. I make breakfast casseroles for my teenage daughter and freeze individual servings and I found that when I reheated it in my fry oven they were perfect and she liked them. I would make it again but thaw the hash browns first to see if that makes a difference. Read More

Took longer to cook than 30 minutes, I ended up keeping it in for about 40, but once it was done it was so good. Great for a quarantine easter brunch Read More

Made it just now for brunch. I used ham instead of bacon and added some baby Bella mushrooms. Whirled the eggs/cottage cheese mixture in the Blendtec on smoothie setting and it came out great! The fam loved it. Read More

This was good but needs a bit of a kick in flavor. I used a jalapeno instead of bell pepper but I think it could benefit from some garlic. I will definitely add more bacon next time. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

I used this as a base recipe. Left out the bacon in deference to son's vegetarian girlfriend so I added garlic powder for flavor. One thing--you really need to blend the eggs and cottage cheese or you won't get the right texture. There are lots of ways to play with this--add spinach other spices etc. I used frozen hash browns and it took an extra 15 minutes to cook but everybody loved it! Read More
