Doris Schweitzer was the straight-talking, loyal till the end, sweet at the core book-keeper for Santa Cruz Bible church for around 20 years. She was a great friend, a loving mom, a staunch Republican and a superb cook. I mean, who else would make filet Mignon for people when they were sick? I remember when she had some of the gals in our office there over to lunch at her apartment. She had made a bundt cake shaped like an rose and served us this egg casserole. It's quick, it's tasty and you can serve a lot of people with it (on a shoe-string).

Ingredients:

10 eggs
1/2 C flour
1/2 t salt
1 pt. cottage cheese (grated)
1 lb. Monterey Jack cheese (grated)
1/2 C butter, melted
1 4 oz. can diced green chilis
1 C chopped ham, sausage, or vegetables
1 t baking powder

Directions:

In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs until light. Add flour, baking powder, salt, cottage cheese, jack cheese and butter. Stir in chilies and meat. Put in greased 9X 13 baking dishes--filled 2/3 full. Bake at 350 degrees about 35 minutes. Serves 15 ladies or 10 men.
