I should add that the original Amish Breakfast Casserole recipe my husband uses also calls for 1 can diced green chiles. He prepares the dish, places in refrigerator overnight and cooks the next morning.

My husband makes this dish for his men's Bible Study every other month. The men devour it! My lucky day is when he has some left over to bring home to me! It is so good the cottage cheese and Swiss cheese are perfect in this recipe. Try it!

Cottage cheese in a breakfast bake? That's something I'd never do but now thinking about it, I suppose it would give it a creamier texture right? I love sausage in just about anything but instead of link chunks, some spicy crumbled up sausage and maybe a little chopped red bell pepper would really liven this dish up a bit both in color and definitely in flavor. And, I've never had Swiss cheese with my eggs before but I bet it's amazing in this recipe!

Hello! Crumbled sausage and red bell pepper will definitely work in this recipe! That's one of the great things about our recipes, you can add your favorites to make it just right for your family! Enjoy!

I add bacon instead of sausage. It is my most passed on recipe. Love it. This is always a must for Christmas am. I make it on Christmas Eve and put in fridge so all I have to do is pop it in the oven.
