Hey y’all, Tiffany here.

A few year’s ago on Mother’s Day, the women at church provided us with breakfast during our Sunday meeting.

Having Crohn’s disease means that I typically don’t get to eat what’s served at social functions.  I’m sensitive to fiber, acidic foods, and spicy foods.

(The last time I ate a few bites of salad, I was in so much pain I ended up in the ER a couple of days before Christmas.)

One of the women finally convinced me to try a few bites of the breakfast egg casserole, which I hesitantly agree to.

I tentatively took a small bite, and then I almost died.

It was delicious!  I took another bite, and another, and another, until I had gone back for thirds.  The delicious, cheesy concoction was like manna from heaven.

(I regretted it later, however, since I didn’t pick out the chilis or sausage.)

I begged for the recipe, and now I make it for almost every potluck breakfast/brunch I go to.  It’s always a hit, and I’ve never taken home a casserole dish that wasn’t scraped bare!

It also goes perfectly with the world’s best pancakes. And if you really want to be adventureous, try replacing the cottage cheese with this delicious Polish Homemade Farmer’s Cheese.
