  • Combine eggs, Cheddar cheese, cottage cheese, flour, butter, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Stir to mix well. Pour into the prepared baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown and a knife inserted into the center comes out clean, about 25 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes. Top with hot sauce before serving.

Cook's Note:

Try mixing in green chiles (in place of the hot sauce), spinach, or mushrooms.

High altitude directions: Use a pinch less baking powder and bake for 30 minutes.
