Chili Brunch

By , from the Culinate Kitchen collection
Serves 12 to 16
Total Time 1½ hours

Introduction

This recipe — from the Julia M. Pitkin cookbook Specialties of the House — is a rich, spicy baked-egg dish that’s perfect for large brunch parties.

Ingredients

~ Butter or oil, for greasing the pan
1 doz. eggs
cup flour
1 tsp. garlic powder (or minced fresh garlic)
½ tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
1 lb. (16 ounces) Cheddar cheese, shredded or cut into small cubes
2 cups cottage cheese
1 can (4 oz.) diced mild green chiles, drained
1 stick (½ cup) butter, melted
~ About 1 cup diced ham, cooked sausage, or cooked bacon bits (optional)
~ Salsa and sour cream, for serving

Steps

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9-by-13-inch baking dish.
  2. Combine all the ingredients except for the salsa and sour cream in a large bowl. Scrape the mixture into the prepared baking dish.
  3. Bake for 45 to 60 minutes, until the dish is set (the middle is no longer jiggly). Remove from the oven and let cool briefly. Slice into squares and serve in the baking dish, with bowls of salsa and sour cream on the side as optional toppings.

Notes

You can bake this dish a day ahead of time, chill it in the fridge overnight, and reheat it the next day (at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes) before serving. Or mix together the ingredients in a bowl the night before and bake it in the morning.
