  • 6 oz shredded hash browns (*see notes above) (170g)
  • 1 small red onion chopped
  • 6 slices turkey bacon / bacon medallions diced
  • 5 spray calorie controlled oil
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 cup low fat cottage cheese (225g)
  • 1 cups fat free / reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese (110g)
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F / 180°C / 160°C fan
  • Place the shredded hash browns into a bowl to defrost (* see tips above if using whole hash browns)
  • Chop the turkey bacon (or bacon medallions if using) into small pieces.
  • Spray the bottom of a non stick frying pan / skillet and heat over a medium heat. Add the bacon pieces and cook for 1 minute before adding the chopped onion.
  • Turn up the heat a bit & continue to cook the bacon and onions until the bacon has browned and the onion pieces have started to soften slightly - this will take 4 or 5 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat.
  • Layer the shredded hash browns on the bottom of a casserole dish (approx 9' x 6') and sprinkle the cooked bacon and onion on top.
  • In a bowl, whisk the eggs until they are light and fluffy and stir in the salt and pepper.
  • Stir in the cottage cheese and then pour this mixture on top of the other ingredients.
  • Top with the shredded / grated cheese.
  • Bake in the centre of the oven for 35 - 40 minutes or until a knife inserted into the middle comes out clean.
  • Remove from the oven and leave to stand for 5 - 10 minutes until slicing into 8 pieces.
  • Eat warm or cold - the choice is yours!
