  • 1 lb Bacon Chopped into 1/2 piecces
  • 1/4 Onion Diced
  • 4 cups Hashbrowns
  • 16 oz Cottage Cheese
  • 2 cups Cheddar Cheese Shredded
  • 1.5 cups Swiss Cheese Shredded
  • 1 tsp Ground Nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp Thyme Leaves Fresh
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
  • 6 Eggs


  • Use a large saute pan to brown the bacon and onions over medium-high heat. This should take about 10 minutes and the onions should be soft and translucent. Allow to cool slightly and then drain the grease.
  • Combine the remaining ingredients in a large mixing bowl and then add the six eggs. Stir to combine well. Pour the mixture into a greased 9 x 13 baking pan.
  • If preparing as a make-ahead breakfast, wrap and seal the casserole and refrigerate overnight.
  • When ready to eat, bake at 350° F. for 35 minutes. Garnish with additional fresh herbs if desired.
