Quick and Easy Egg Bake Recipe with Bacon

Over the years I’ve found myself hosting a lot of get togethers around breakfast time. And that means I’ve had time to perfect my favorite brunch dishes (like my ever so popular overnight french toast bake).

One thing I love to make for brunch are egg dishes. From quiche to egg cups to this egg bake, egg dishes are so easy to throw together and are almost always the one dish that’s completely devoured by the end of our events.

And I have a secret ingredient I add to each of these dishes РDaisy cottage cheese.

Not only does Daisy cottage cheese bring these dishes to another level, it also allows me to use less cheese and save on calories while adding more protein to my dishes.

And when I’m watching what I eat I can sub the light or fat free Daisy cottage cheese with egg whites and low fat cheddar for a healthy go-to breakfast to enjoy while staying on plan.¬†Luckily I don’t have to worry about my girlish figure while pregnant.

These egg dishes are also a great way to get some veggies into my breakfast as well. And the cottage cheese only makes them taste better. Don’t believe me? Try it!
