  • 1 pound bulk breakfast sausage
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 1 16 ounce package cottage cheese
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 10 eggs lightly beaten


  • Preheat oven to 400°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!
