Breakfast Casserole

I love making breakfast casseroles, especially when family's in town. Quick, easy, and make-ahead! I found this one that incorporated hash browns and it was delicious!

30-oz bag frozen shredded hashbrowns
1 tbsp dried onion
16-oz container cottage cheese
1 small can diced green chilies
2 cups (1 lb) your fave breakfast meat (cubed ham, cooked & crumbled bacon, cooked sausage)
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 dozen eggs

Coat casserole dish with cooking spray. Put hash browns in dish, then add dried onion, cottage cheese, and green chilies. Mix gently. Now add meat and 1.5 cups cheese and mix again. Beat the eggs and pour over the mixture. Put remaining 1/2 cup cheese on top.

If freezing, cover with saran wrap and foil. Bake at 350 for ~2 hours (one hour covered, second hour uncovered). It will be set and slightly brown on top. (If not frozen, it will cook in slightly over an hour.)
