I have talked and talked and talked about this, but I had some requests for the recipe. I am an egg in the morning kinda person. Are you?

There is nothing better than a stack of prepped meals in the fridge, amiright?

My mom came across this recipe a few years ago and I have since made it even easier!

Preheat oven to 350.

Get out a small Pyrex and mix ingredients right in it after spraying a bit of Pam.

6 eggs, a small container of cottage cheese, a can of green chilies that I currently cannot find!, and whatever amount of cheese you want. I use about 1/4 cup – 1/2 cup because I am not wanting the extra calories. Add a bit of your favorite spices. Mix all up well and bake for 30-40 minutes depending on your oven and how golden you desire it. I don’t let the oven reach the full temp and do 40 minutes.

The final product:

Mixing stages:

Cut into 6 equal squares.

Plate it in the morning. I like it with sauteed zuchinni and Jimmy Dean’s turkey sausage. This is 4 WW points if I calculated correctly.

Yum! I grew up on the breakfast casseroles of the 80s and I truly do not miss the bread. The green chilies really make it for me. I am having to eat it without them this week and I am sad.

Ha! What is your go-to breakfast?

  1. My go to breakfast is a fruit and yogurt parfait made using fresh pineapples, strawberries, blueberries, and grapes a bit of fat free plain yogurt with a 1/4 cup of granola on top. Depending on the granola I use it’s about 3-4 points and I just love the juicy of burst of flavor from all the fruit paired with the crunch of the granola and the slightly sour taste of the yogurt (plus the protein in the yogurt makes me feel fuller longer than just the fruit and granola).

    1. I love the McDonald’s fruit and yogurt parfait and I had a phase where I was making them at home. I would have to get the right yogurt and granola that don’t have too many points and still taste good. I don’t like nuts! Any recs for brands? I would eat that for lunch because I like my eggs! Yum! The higher protein really helps!

    1. I am going to try a little Mexican grocery store! You can try homemade enchilada sauce – believe it’s from Budget Bytes website. It’s super easy and you may like it better. Another blogger told me about it. Hmmm maybe I will make enchiladas, too! I have all the stuff.

  2. Not a breakfast person… I make a glass of fresh lemon and grated ginger (trendy, I know, but it has kept me from colds and flus for two years now!) and drink lots of coffee with lots of milk… That keeps me up until lunch :-).
    But on weekends I gladly enjoy nice brunch, as long as it’s not too early!
    Already Thursday… where did this week go!?
    And… so proud to be your Swedish friend! 😀

  3. Good morning! Sometimes I am a breakfast person….sometimes I am not. But two of my favorites: chocolate chip oatmeal with peanut butter, chia seeds, and protein powder or nutella toast and strawberries. Lately I usually just have a cup of coffee (surprise surprise😜) Have a great day, Señora!!

      1. I am so very picky about my oatmeal. I love cooking so I can’t wait to have a kitchen all to myself and not shared with a whole building. And yes, let’s chat soon!!

  4. i am going to have to try your breakfast egg dish soon as it looks declicious! i live in texas and have not seen a green chile shortage. however, i buy fresh hatch chiles when in season, or regular anaheim fresh chiles and roast them at home. i buy tons of them fresh and have a roast/bag/freeze session. they keep forever in the freezer and i find i add them to alot of things i ordinarily wouldn’t think of because they are so handy to pluck out of the freezer and thaw!

    1. Thank you Rita! I did think about making my own. They really add so much to soups, nachos, casseroles, everything! Maybe I will get adventurous. I did learn to make so many things in the last year due to shortages or not being able to go to the store often.

  5. That sounds delicious! My favorite breakfast is leftover deviled eggs. I do love an egg casserole thought. I make mine with eggs, a Mexican shredded cheese blend, and red, green, orange, or yellow peppers. Sometimes I throw a few jalapeños, spinach and artichokes, or sausage in the mix too. I love that I start with eggs, cheese, and peppers and can end up with something different every time.
