Eggs Overload – Prysnac Serbia for dinner!

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.

Prysnac Serbia

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.
