Prep Time 10 minutes Cook Time 40 minutes Total Time 50 minutes
Calories 158 kcal 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.
