  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Place the butter in a 9x13 inch baking dish and put the dish in the oven while it preheats.
  2. In the container of a blender, combine the eggs, flour and baking powder. Cover and blend until smooth, about 1 minute. Pour into a large bowl and fold in the cottage cheese and Monterey Jack cheese. Pour over the melted butter in the dish.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until firm in the center, about 30 minutes. A knife inserted into the center should come out clean.

I made this recipe from the Krasnapolski Hotel in Amsterdam on Christmas morning with the addition of 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese and 20 oz. frozen spinach, thawed, drained, and mixed into the batter along with 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese. Great served with halved grape tomatoes and shredded basil in a light vinaigrette, along with fresh fruit and crusty, buttered bread. This recipe makes wonderful left-overs, easily reheated in the microwave.

A good, easy recipe, however it needs some seasonings. My family and guests enjoyed it as written, but next time I'm going to add some sauted onions, salt and pepper, and some hot sauce or jalapeno peppers or cayenne pepper. It needs a bit of a boost. I found the cheese didn't separate from the eggs as someone wrote, and I also found that cooking it for 30 minutes was fine in my oven.

There are plenty of recipes for oven omelets full of veggies and meat, but I was looking for a very simple protein dish so that the fresh fruit and cranberry scones I served wouldn't have to compete with a riot of flavors. This recipe was perfect. The only changes I made were to skip the melted butter and just grease the baking dish with a tablespoon of butter, and I reduced the remaining recipe by half for an 8" square baking dish. The Jack cheese is essential to the flavor. I made it once with mozzarella and found that it was a bit too bland; but either Jack or Swiss gives it a nice more-than-just-eggs kick. It makes a pretty dish and slices very neatly. I will make it often.

Big hit with my husband and two boys. I actually used my cast iron skillet for this. Just plopped the butter in the skillet and stuck it in the oven while it preheated. I did add a little Frank's Hot Sauce and some fresh ground pepper. I think next time, seeing as this is so simple, I might saute some vegetables in the skillet with the butter, then add in the egg ingredients and throw it into the oven. Very VERY simple, which I appreciated. It's like a quick omelette!

This was good. Everyone liked it's a 4, certainly not a 5. I had to cook it around 40 minutes to make sure the center was cooked. I cooked, and added some crumbled sausage. If you make some toast you have a complete breakfast.

This is just plain easy and terrific! I would make it again in a heartbeat. All the other suggestions are great and will give them a try too. I might like to try Chorizo sausage or maybe crab in it too. A keeper for sure! Thanks!
