  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Cook and stir bacon and onion in a skillet over medium heat until the bacon is crisp, 10 to 15 minutes. Drain grease, reserving the drippings.
  3. Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish with the reserved bacon grease.
  4. Combine the cooked bacon and onion, eggs, hash brown potatoes, Cheddar cheese, cottage cheese, Swiss cheese, bell pepper, and green chilies in the prepared baking dish; stir to combine.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until the eggs are set firm, 35 to 40 minutes.
  6. Let casserole cool 10 minutes before cutting to serve.


  • Cook's Note:
  • You can also bake this in 9x9-inch baking dish and any remainder in greased foil-lined muffin tins.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

This dish mostly tasted like bacon and took 45 minutes to cook. Overall it was okay but not worth the effort.

So yummy! Didn't use the cottage cheese or Swiss. I had cheddar and pepper jack on hand. I used 6 cups of shredded hash browns and 9 Eggs. Made a wonderfully large batch! My boys loved it too!

I skipped recipe cheese and added 8oz of shredded Colby jack. Doesn't matter if hash browns are frozen either. Also added 7 oz of free chiles. This is awesome and will be in the book for a ...
