This was quite good! I had it for dinner with a tossed salad. My toppings were crumbled bacon, shredded mozzarella and chopped green onions.

Next time, I think I'll use crumbled breakfast sausages. Pretty much use what you like - anything goes!

Egg Tortilla Bake (2 Ways) https://www.fooddolls.com/egg-tortilla-recipe/

Equipment


1 Round Baking Dish or Pie Dish

Ingredients

Cooking spray or a little oil for greasing the baking dish

1 tortilla 8-10 inches in diameter

3 large eggs

1/3 cup cottage cheese

Salt to taste

Black pepper to taste

Flavor Option One

Tomatoes diced

Green peppers diced

Spinach or arugula chopped

1/4 cup Mozzarella cheese (or choice of cheese)

Flavor Option Two

Tomatoes

Kalamata olives

Red onions

Spinach

Feta cheese

Mozarella cheese

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius). While the oven is heating up, gather all the ingredients, and prepare the toppings.

Take a round baking dish or a pie dish that's approximately the same size as the tortilla. Grease the bottom and sides of the dish lightly with cooking spray or a small amount of oil.

Place the tortilla at the bottom of the baking dish to create the crust.

In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs and cottage cheese until well combined. Season the mixture with a pinch of salt and pepper to taste.

Pour the egg and cottage cheese mixture over the tortilla in the baking dish, ensuring it spreads evenly.

Now, add the toppings. Be creative with this step! Sprinkle diced tomatoes, diced green peppers, and chopped spinach or arugula evenly over the egg mixture. Or, use flavor option two with tomatoes, olives, red onions, and spianch. Feel free to add other ingredients like diced onions, mushrooms, or cooked bacon if desired.

Finally, sprinkle the mozzarella cheese, feta and mozzarella, or choice of cheese over the top of the toppings. This will give the tortilla bake a nice cheesy finish.

Place the baking dish in the preheated oven, and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the eggs are set and the top is golden brown. The exact cooking time may vary depending on the oven, so keep an eye on it to avoid overcooking.

Once done, remove the tortilla egg bake from the oven, and let it cool for a few minutes before slicing it into wedges or squares.

I reheated the other half in the toaster oven for 5 minutes this morning - it still was great!

I made one of these again using the spinach tortilla.
It's certainly not as pretty, but it's going to be my breakfast or lunch for the next couple of days.
I added red onion, bacon crumbles, cheddar and nutmeg.
