Stove top: Fried or scrambled

  • In a separate frying pan, add eggs; cook them to your liking (fried or scrambled)
  • When eggs are cooked to your liking, reduce heat to low, add cheddar cheese, cover with a lid and cook until melted (about 2-3 minutes)
  • Remove from pan and add fried onion.

Baked (Sheet Pan)

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.┬áPrepare a 9X13 sheet pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Carefully crack eggs into the sheet pan. Try to spread them out the best you can, but they will go where they want to go so don't worry.
  • Sprinkle cheddar cheese evenly over eggs.
  • Bake eggs for 8-10 minutes. * If you like the yolks a little firmer, then cook for longer (you will need to keep an eye on it)
  • Remove from oven and add bacon bits, fried onion, and sauerkraut and dry curd cottage cheese, as desired. Serve immediately.


  • Garnish with sour cream and dill (fresh or dried), if desired.


*NOTE: You can find dry curd cottage cheese at most grocery stores. I have found it at Co op, Superstore and Safeway.
