Christmas Brunch

I made some changes to a breakfast casserole that we've made quite often, and the changes were a huge hit.  I wanted to jot them down before forgetting.

Egg Casserole
10 eggs
1 lb hot breakfast sausage
1 onion, chopped
1 bell pepper, chopped
1 green chili, chopped (with the seeds)
20 oz small curd cottage cheese
4 oz can chopped green chilis
1 lb freshly-shredded Monterrey Jack cheese
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup melted butter
salt & pepper to taste

The night before, beat the eggs, and add the cheeses and chilis.  Store overnight in an airtight container in the refrigerator.  In the morning, sautee the onion, bell pepper, and chili over medium heat.  Crumble in the breakfast sausage, and brown until cooked through.  Combine all of the ingredients, pour into a greased baking dish, and bake at 350 for 45 minutes.  Let sit for 10 minutes, then enjoy!
