I am always looking for new breakfast ideas. I would be happy eating either scrambled eggs or Overnight Steel-Cut Oats, but my husband likes to have variety. Some of his favorites are not 21 day fix approved, so I have been trying to revamp some of those. This turned out so good! I have made it several times, but unfortunatley my husband can not have dairy anymore. Not sure how to make it dairy-free. If anyone has an idea, please leave a comment. If you know you will have some busy mornings this week, why not bake this up and just reheat to eat!
21 Day Fix Egg Chile Bake, serves 4, 2 pieces each
10 eggs, beaten
2 cups 2% cottage cheese
2 -4 oz.cans green chiles
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 cup whole wheat flour (I used gluten-free flour since we can’t have gluten)
1 1/4 cups shredded cheddar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl mix eggs and cottage cheese together well. Add the flour, chiles, baking powder and stir. Mix in the cheese. Pour into a prepared 9×13 pan. Bake for 40 minutes or until lightly browned on the edges and firm. Cut into 8 equal pieces.
21 day fix: 2 pieces 1 red, 1 blue. (I didn’t count the chiles since there isn’t much in each piece. The flour doesn’t add much overall either, but if you want you could count as 1/2 yellow.)
