So, those of you reading this blog may or may not know this about me, but I do not like eggs. I know how healthy eggs can be so I often try an egg dish to see if it may change my mind. Well, after over 30 years, I have liked only three egg dishes: my mother-in-law’s scrambled eggs (she adds ranch dressing), a co-worker’s deviled eggs (lots of mustard and vinegar) and finally, my friend Danielle made me Prysnac Serbia. I recently decided to reach out to Danielle for the recipe. My husband loves eggs and I thought it would be a nice treat for him.
The craziest thing about this dish is that I swore it had sausage in it. This is likely because I love sausage and it always sounds like a good idea. However, this is actually a broccoli, cheese and egg casserole. I have to be honest – I was nervous. Will it still taste good to me?
You won’t know until you try it (again)! The following recipe is adapted from this fastrecipes.com recipe.
Serves 8 (320 calories per serving)
- 10 oz. Broccoli; frozen chopped
- 6 Eggs (large); unbeaten
- 24 oz. Cottage cheese, small curd (Fat Free)
- 6 Tablespoons of Flour
- 8 oz. Cheddar cheese, shredded
- 1/4 cup Butter; melted
- 3 Scallion; chopped
- Pepper; to taste (I added about 1 teaspoon)
First things first – you’ll need your crockpot and a standing mixer (or large bowl and a hand mixer).
Next, do a quick thaw on the broccoli. Place it in a colander and run warm water over it. Allow the broccoli to drain. If its still got a lot of water, let it drain for a minute or two on paper towels.
Add all of the ingredients into the mixer.
Mix on the lowest setting until fully mixed (about 2-3 minutes). Please watch the mixer – I had one piece of broccoli try to escape!
Add the mixture directly into the crockpot. Cook on high for 1 hour then turn the crockpot to low for another 2-3 hours.
Now it’s Dinnertime!
I’m glad I made this dish. I still liked it! Phew! When you look at it, you think it’s all eggs but it’s a mirage – there is a ton of cottage cheese. So cheesy goodness – lots of protein. I suggest serving with toasted garlic bread as an edible utensil with added crunch.
