Submitted by: Arlene J.
" On Saturday mornings I like to make a special breakfast for my family.
It's a perfect way to start the day together. I love to throw together
this omelette and then sit down and enjoy a cup of coffee while reading
1 lb. Monterey Jack Cheese,
shredded 2 cups chopped ham
1/2 cup melted butter or margerine
1/2 cup flour 1 tsp. baking powder
1 dozen eggs
1 tsp salt 1/4 tsp. pepper 1/4 tsp. tobasco sauce
1 small container small-curd cottage cheese
1/2 c. bread crumbs (optional)
Saute the shredded cheese and ham in 1 tablespoon of the butter (just
enough to melt the cheese).
Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Melt the rest of the butter in a 9 X 13
pan in heated oven.
Sift together the flour and baking powder in a seperate bowl.
Beat the eggs. Add the salt, pepper and tabasco sauce.
Stir in the flour and baking powder mixture, cottage cheese, melted
cheese and ham with a wire whisk. Pour into the buttered 9 X 13 pan.
Bake for 15 minutes at 400 degrees, then cover the top with buttered
bread crumbs, if desired.
Reduce the heat to 350 degrees, then bake an additional 15-20 minutes
or until golden brown and set.
Serve hot. Will serve 12.
