Chili Cheese Egg Bake

  • Butter, for pan
  • 10 eggs
  • 1/2 Cup flour
  • 1 Teaspoon baking powder
  • Dash of salt
  • 1/4 Pound butter, melted and cooled
  • 2 small cans green chilies, diced
  • 1 pint cottage cheese
  • 1 Pound Monterey Jack cheese, shredded


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a 13-by-9-inch pan. Beat the eggs in a large bowl with an electric hand mixer or stand mixer.

Mix the flour, baking powder, and salt together in a separate bowl. Add the flour mixture into the egg mixture — a little bit at a time — until all incorporated. Add the melted butter. (Make sure it's cool, otherwise you'll cook the eggs.) Add in the remaining ingredients.

Pour the mixture into a baking dish and bake for about 40 minutes, or until set and lightly browned. Allow the dish to cool for 10 minutes before serving.
