Breakfast Pie on Christmas Morning

Each year I make a huge Christmas morning feast for my family. One of the stars of the meal is this fabulous “breakfast pie.” It’s a little time consuming to make. I usually make two pies on Christmas Eve day and heat them up for the morning festivities. I never meant to make this a Holiday tradition, but now, my family expects it and I love that they do.

I’ve also brought the pies to scrapbooking crops. They warm up great—and they are even good chilled.

I've served it with salsa and it livens it up a good bit. My scrapbooking friends have made their own versions of it. One adds spinach in it; another one adds broccoli and ham in it. It's an extremely versatile pie.

This pie is crustless—technically known as an “impossible pie.” You can add other ingredient besides the onions, mushrooms, different cheeses, and so on. It’s a pie made for creativity.


1 12- ounce carton cottage cheese
1 cup shredded cheddar
1 3-ounce package cream cheese
2 eggs
1 cup bisquick
¼ cup green onions
2 eggs
¼ cup milk
1 tablespoon sesame seeds toasted
Combine the first four ingredients, set aside

Stir until moistened,
Spoon ½ dough mix into greased pie plate.
Spoon on cheese mixture.
Top with remaining batter.
Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
Bake 375 degrees, 30-35 minutes or until inserted knife comes out clean.
