  • Step 2

    Mix eggs, cottage cheese, Monterey Jack cheese, green chiles, butter, flour, bacon, and baking powder together in a large bowl; pour into prepared baking dish.

  • Step 3

    Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and continue baking until a toothpick inserted into the center of the casserole comes out clean, about 30 minutes more.

  • Cook's Notes:

    For a healthier version, I use low-fat, low-moisture shredded mozzarella and skip the butter and meat. It tastes just as amazing!

    Casserole can be made a night ahead and refrigerated or frozen for later use.

    You can use turkey bacon or Canadian ham in place of bacon, if you wish.
