Finding Thyme to Cook

Thyme is of the Essence

Effortless Eggs

Oven Omelet

I am all for easy breakfast food, with quick clean up.  This is very simple and can be prepared for a large crowd (double the recipe) or just for a couple of people with little preparation.   The chiles give it a bit of a kick and the sour cream and cottage cheese keep the eggs fluffy while baking.

  • 5 eggs
  • 1/4 pound cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 pound Jack cheese
  • 1/4 cup flour (sifted)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder (sifted with flour)
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 pint cottage cheese
  • 1/4 pint sour cream
  • 2-4 ounces chopped green chilies

Preheat oven 350 degrees

Dice both cheeses and chop chiles and set aside.
