Amish Breakfast Casserole

My friend, Carolyn sent this recipe to me. It looks like the perfect thing for Christmas morning! And for all my gluten free friends, this one is for you too.

1 pound bacon, diced
1 medium sweet onion, chopped
6 eggs lightly beaten
4 c frozen shredded hash brown potatoes, thawed - I used Ore-Ida
2 c (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese - I used sharp
1 1/2 c (12 ounces) 4% cottage cheese
1 1/4 c shredded Swiss cheese

In a large skillet, cook bacon and onion until bacon is crisp; drain. In a large bowl, combine the remaining ingredients; stir in bacon mixture. Transfer to a greased 13in. x 9in. baking dish. Bake uncovered, at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting. Yields 12 servings.
Note from Carolyn: It is gluten-free and we serve with blueberry muffins (which aren't gluten-free) and fresh fruit. Leftovers are yummy the next day.
