Another great breakfast or brunch idea. I make this dish many different ways, but this is how I decided to make it this morning. My son loves cottage cheese, so decided to add it. He loved it. Its great warmed up as well.

    I leave the dish set for 5 - 10 minutes, before cutting. Enjoy with some fresh fruit or as i served, with halved cherry tomatoes. Quite satisfying.
