A couple of weeks ago I was spooning cottage cheese into little containers for the girls school lunch. “Besides eating it alone, or in Lasagne, what else can you use cottage cheese for?” my husband asked as he passed by me in the kitchen. I couldn’t think of a single thing, which totally surprised him and myself.

Then while browsing Eggs.ca for a new brunch idea on a lazy Saturday morning, because, brunch obviously calls for eggs, I stumbled on their Egg and Vegetable Casserole recipe.

This recipe called for – cottage cheese! AHA! How could I not make this recipe?

While the cottage cheese addition to this egg casserole piqued my curiosity, I was also drawn to the simple ingredients and the quick prep and cook time. These are things that very much appeal to my schedule!

Yet, the Egg and Vegetable Casserole recipe on Eggs101 was actually an inspiration to my own recipe, because I didn’t have cauliflower at the time and I wanted to add vegetables that I knew would be a hit with the kids.

So, instead I made the recipe with broccoli, spinach, green onions and cherry tomatoes. What a colourful mix, right? I also added more cheese because I truly think more cheese is always better.

Verdict, Score! Everyone, including myself, loved Egg and Vegetable Casserole and I know I’ll now make it again and again.

Not only because it was so delicious, but my family requested to have it again soon. I can’t argue with that!
