RECIPE: Amish Breakfast Casserole

To be totally fair to myself, this is one of the better food photographs I've taken, so it's kind of sad that Amish Breakfast Casserole, while the taste is somewhere beyond delicious, doesn't exactly lend itself to a nummy-looking picture. Take it from my husband, who is pictured here holding the plate he just finished warming up in the microwave: it is really, really good.
Amish Breakfast Casserole
1 pound bacon
1 large onion, chopped
6 eggs, lightly beaten
4 cups frozen hash browns, thawed (I used southern style)
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 1/2 shredded Swiss cheese
1 1/2 cups small curd cottage cheese
4 dashes hot pepper sauce
Cook the bacon and the onion in a skillet until the bacon is crispy. Drain well on paper towels; set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, add the beaten eggs, hash browns, three cheeses and pepper sauce and stir to combine. Add the bacon and onion; stir again. Pour mixture into a buttered 9x13 baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until set and bubbly. Let it stand for ten minutes before cutting. Serves 4-6.
