Breakfast Casserole

We had a breakfast get together with some friends this weekend. We seem to do this about every 6 months to a year. I am a huge fan of breakfast, so mixing breakfast  and good friends is even better. We also always have very delicious food. My friend made some amazing cinnamon rolls which I am hoping she will post on her blog. I was in charge of making a breakfast casserole. I have made a few different kinds of breakfast casserole but always love trying new recipes. This recipe was so easy to make and turned out delicious. Everyone loved it! I threw it together the night before then let sit in the fridge until the next morning when I was ready to bake it. This way I didn't have to wake up early to make it but it was still warm for everyone to eat. I will definitely be making this recipe again!

Breakfast Casserole

Prep: 15 min. Bake: 35 min. + standing
Yield: 12 Servings

1 pound sliced bacon, diced (I used turkey bacon and loved it)
1 medium sweet onion, chopped
6 eggs, lightly beaten
4 cups frozen shredded hash brown potatoes, thawed
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
1-1/2 cups (12 ounces) 4% cottage cheese
1-1/4 cups shredded Swiss cheese

In a large skillet, cook bacon and onion until bacon is crisp; drain. In a large bowl, combine the remaining ingredients; stir in bacon mixture. Transfer to a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish.
Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting.
