This breakfast casserole with eggs and cottage cheese takes eggs to a whole different level! It’s fluffy, moist, cake-y, cheesy and so, so DELICIOUS! A family staple breakfast casserole!

Ah breakfast… The first meal of the day and often underestimated in it’s importance. Making breakfast can be quite challenging, especially with time. But their are some easier homemade alternatives like making this quiche pie the night before or this french toast recipe and heating up the next morning. But rotation makes for a nice change and this breakfast casserole can make quite an appearance (not to mention it can feed a crowd.) Popping this in the oven while the children get ready can have a tasty breakfast on the table in just a matter of time. I like the edge pieces, they seem to be slightly crisp and the filling turns out so moist! Make this Breakfast Casserole with Eggs and Cottage Cheese for a crowd or half the recipe to make a smaller portion and if it becomes a family favorite please share!

    Serving size of 1g doesn’t really make sense. I am curious just how calorie laden this is, now that I am nearly 40 years old and care now. We made this recipe probably monthly growing up, for sure a family favorite, and now my kids love it too!

    I’m certain we’ve used fresh chopped onion before and it works fine, never fresh parsley that I know of though.

      Hi Dale, updated the nutritional info. I never tried this with fresh parsley. It sure is a favorite among all the breakfast dishes we eat!

    • Anna

    Can I substitute the dried onion and dried parsley for fresh onion and parsley?

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      You could try but the dried onion works more like a spice and I’m not sure how well it would cook through in this recipe.
