  • 1 pound (453g) bulk breakfast sausage
  • ½ cup (113g) butter melted
  • 1 (16 ounce/454g) package cottage cheese
  • 2 cups (228g) shredded cheddar cheese (or mozzarella or Monterey Jack)
  • ¼ cup (31g) all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 10 large eggs lightly beaten


  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Spray a 9x13” pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Cook breakfast sausage in a medium skillet over medium-high heat, breaking into crumbles. Cook until no longer pink. Transfer to a plate covered with paper towels and pat away the excess fat. Cool at least 10 minutes.
  • Stir together butter, cottage cheese, cheddar cheese, flour, baking powder, pepper, and salt. Whisk in eggs and whisk until combined (mixture will be lumpy). Stir in cooked and cooled sausage.
  • Pour into prepared pan and bake for 30-40 minutes or until browned and set in the middle. Cool 5-10 minutes before slicing and serving.
  • Best served fresh, but it can also be sliced and stored in individual containers and frozen. Defrost in microwave.



Use any kind of sausage and any kind of cheese!
If your casserole browns too quickly, tent with foil. My oven tends to bake hotter on top, so I often do this to make sure it cooks all the way through without getting too brown.
