Sometimes I really struggle with breakfast. Not because I don't LOVE it, because I do, but because it's a busy time of day and I'm usually rushing to get to work and don't always plan



Total time

50 minutes


Breakfast, Brunch


  • 6 slices lower fat bacon
  • 8 eggs
  • 1½ cups cottage cheese
  • 2 cups shredded hash browns
  • 2 cups vegetables (finely chopped)
  • 2 cups shredded marble jack cheese (divided)
  • ¾ tsp coarse salt
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • crushed red pepper flakes
  • parsley (for garnish)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place a wire rack on a baking sheet and coat with cooking spray. Line bacon on the wire rack and bake 10-12 minutes, until crispy.

    Once slightly cooled, chop into bite-sized pieces and place in a large mixing bowl. To the mixing bowl, add eggs, cottage cheese, hash browns, vegetables, 1 cup shredded cheese, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes and whisk to combine.

    Transfer egg mixture to a greased 9x13 baking dish. Top with remaining cup of shredded cheese.

    Bake 35-40 minutes, until egg is set. Remove and allow to slightly cool before slicing. Top with parsley and serve.
