Sunshine and Sausage Casserole

From the Farm Chicks' Cookbook:

1/2 to 3/4 lb pork (or turkey) sausage
10 large eggs
2 cups 2% fat or whole milk cottage cheese
8 ounces jack cheese, grated (2 cups) (I just used cheddar)
1 7 ounce can diced green chili peppers (I omitted these since I was making it for a crowd)
1/2 cup chopped green onions
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 cup butter, melted

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sausage to the skillet and cook, breaking up with a wooden spoon and stirring occasionally, until browned -- 5 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-line plate to cool. Lightly oil a 9 X 13 inch glass baking dish. Beat the eggs in a large bowl. Stir in the sausage, cheeses, chili peppers, and green onions. Without stirring, add the flour, then the baking powder, and then butter; then stir to combine. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish and bake until set -- 40 to 45 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool for about 10 minutes; then serve.

I really enjoyed this recipe and think it might show up on holidays from time to time!
