Vegetarian Egg Casserole Recipe - Perfect for Brinner

I love eating breakfast for dinner, especially when a great egg casserole in on the menu. I have many egg dishes that I love to eat, but there is no way I'm going to spend an hour getting breakfast on the table during the week and Sunday is out since we go to 9am church. So that only leaves Saturday morning and Brett likes to make the kids waffles or pancakes on Saturdays. I have learned to embrace this since it means I get to sleep in. It's a difficult life, but someone has to sleep in.

Sorry ladies, I'm taken :)

So all my fabulous egg dishes are now served for dinner. My kids and Brett love it, in fact they request brinner all the time! And egg dishes are super fast to throw together, so I love the quick prep meal! The egg dish that I'm going to share with you is my family's favorite. My mother in law gave me the recipe and she makes it almost every time we all get together. Originally it was called Mammoth Egg Casserole, but my kids renamed it Egg A Roll Casserole. Well that's how they pronounced Mammoth Egg with their cute speech problems and the name stuck.

Egg-a-Roll Casserole Recipe

9 large eggs
1 pound grated jack Cheese
2 cups small curd cottage cheese
1 cup Bisquick
1 Cup milk

1.  In a large bowl beat the eggs until they are fluffy.
2. Beat in milk.
3. Beat in Bisquick. There will be some lumps but get it as smooth as possible.
4. Stir in cheese and cottage cheese.
5. Pour into a greased 9" X 13" pan. I like to add a little salt and pepper to the top of the casserole at this point. Use according to your taste.
6. Bake uncovered for 40 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Serve with salsa.

So go ahead and make some brinner tonight! It's fast and you'll have some leftovers for the morning. That is my second favorite part of this dinner, I don't have to make breakfast the next day since the kids ALWAYS ask for the leftovers. Just pop in the microwave and enjoy!

A quick note about the cheese, you could use any kind you like. I prefer jack cheese since it's creamy and mild. But don't you dare even think for one single minute that you can skip a step and buy grated cheese! For those of you who don't know, it has added ingredients so it won't clump and it will not taste the same. Friends don't let friends use packaged grated cheese :)
