  • 10 whole eggs
  • ½ cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 ¾ cup cottage cheese
  • 2 cups shredded cheese Cheddar and Monterey Jack
  • 2 cups diced ham
  • 1 whole diced red bell pepper.
  • ¼ cup butter


  • Whisk eggs in a large bowl.
  • Add flour, baking powder, salt and pepper. Mix
  • Stir in cottage cheese, shredded cheese, ham and bell pepper.
  • Place butter in a 2 quart baking dish. Place dish in preheated 350 degree oven until butter is melted.
  • Remove from oven. Swirl butter around bottom and sides of dish.
  • Pour in egg mixture.
  • Bake for 45-55 minutes.
  • Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.


  • Baking time may vary depending on size of baking dish and the amount of added veggies. Check for doneness by giving baking dish a gentle giggle or by inserting a butter knife into the center. Knife should not have any raw egg mixture when done.
  • This dish can be made ahead of time up to mixing all ingredients together. Cover mixing bowl and store in refrigerator. When ready to bake proceed with melting butter in baking dish. This may increase baking time by 10 minutes.
