The Sausage Egg Casserole is always a special breakfast at our house.
**I follow the night before instructions on holidays. This is an easy put together.
10 eggs, beaten
1 (16 ounce) container low-fat cottage cheese
1 pound Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
3 (4 ounce) cans diced green chile peppers, drained
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cook crumbled sausage in large skillet, drain well and set aside to cool. In a small bowl mix together baking powder, salt and flour. Stir in melted butter and set aside. In a large bowl mix beaten eggs with Monty Jack cheese, green chiles, cottage cheese and cooked sausage.
Stir flour mixture into egg mixture. Pour casserole into a 9x13 baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting into squares.
