Ingredients
  Hot water 4 Cup (64 tbs)
  Dried hash brown potatoes 5 1⁄5 Ounce
  Eggs 5 , well beaten
  Shredded swiss cheese/Any other cheese 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Cottage cheese 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Ground black pepper 1⁄8 Teaspoon
  Hot sauce 1⁄8 Teaspoon
  Green onion 1 , chopped
  Bacon slices 6 , cooked, drained and crumbled
  Paprika To Taste (For Sprinkling The Top)
  Cooking oil spray 1
Directions

In a large bowl, place the entire 5.2 oz. hash brown mixture. Pour 4 cups hot water over the hash browns, and let stand for 10 minutes. Drain, and pat off any extra moisture with a paper towel. In a large bowl, combine 5 well-beaten eggs, 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese, ½ cup cottage cheese, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper, 1/8 teaspoon hot sauce, and 1 chopped green onion. Add drained hash browns, and mix thoroughly. Pour mixture into a deep-dish pie plate that has been sprayed with cooking oil spray. Sprinkle with crumbs from 6 slices of cooked bacon and a dash of paprika. Cover with plastic wrap or aluminum foil and refrigerate at least 3 hours (or overnight). Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes, or until mixture is set. (You can check for doneness by inserting a clean knife in the center, and it should come out clean.) Cut into wedges, and serve immediately. This breakfast goes well with cherry tomato halves or sliced tomatoes. I also served mine with freshly made hot cocoa. Delish!
