Is the world ready for another breakfast casserole recipe? This one is quite good with a slight spicy Southwest "kick" to it. The addition of the cottage cheese gives the texture a nice lift and adds a bit of creaminess to the dish. If you like, you can add a bit of salsa or spicy guacamole on the side.
