Brunch Casserole

If the only reason you are looking at this blog is to see if I will ever put the Brunch Casserole up here it is! This came from my friend Chris Crow. Ya’ll know Chris? What a lovely young lady. This is excellent and also freezes well. If you have leftovers stick it in the freezer. When you warm it up it tastes about the same. Now when I make this I just whip the whole thing up in the morning because it’s simple and quick enough that I can do that. However it has been my experience if you want to mix it up the night before it will need to cook a little longer because the ingredients are all cold. (Had to add that because I do have a few semi-retarded fiends) You know who you are girls. Don’t be ashamed just embrace it. If you go to a brunch take this dish. Everyone will think you’re the coolest girl at the party. kreid

1 T. butter melted
10 eggs
16 oz. shredded mild or sharp cheddar cheese (best if thicker shred)
16 oz. cottage cheese
8 oz diced green chili peppers
Optional: crumbled sausage, diced red peppers-whatever you like-but it’s also great plain!
1 cup flour
1 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp salt
½ cup butter melted
Directions: To prepare ahead of time- mix first 5 (6) ingredients, cover and leave in fridge overnight. The next morning, preheat oven to 350. Grease a 9X13 baking dish. Mix flour and baking powder and salt together. Stir into egg mixture. Add melted butter. Pour into baking dish and cook from 40-60 minutes (I cook for 45) until lightly brown.
