Breakfast Casserole Amish Style

Savory Sweet and Satisfying: Breakfast Casserole Amish Style

I love breakfast foods like this casserole. I can eat them for breakfast, brunch, or even brinner(breakfast for dinner). Basically any time of the day.

This casserole is super tasty and super easy to make. I used low sodium cottage cheese to keep the sodium levels down, but you do not have to. In fact you could even use ricotta cheese if you do not like cottage cheese. With this casserole you can also prepare it the night before cover it and then bake it (uncovered) in the morning. Just note that if you put it in the oven straight from the fridge it may take longer to bake.
