Ingredients

  • 16 round miniature frozen homestyle waffles, thawed
  • 3/4 cup frozen chopped broccoli, thawed
  • 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup green onions with tops, chopped
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1 cup (4%) small curd cottage cheese

  • 6   eggs, divided
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Thaw waffles at room temperature 10 minutes. Preheat oven to 375°F. Spray Deep Dish Pie Plate with canola oil using Kitchen Spritzer. Drain broccoli on paper towel. Chop bell pepper and green onions with Food Chopper. Combine broccoli, bell pepper, green onions and 3/4 cup of the cheddar cheese in Small Batter Bowl; mix gently.

  2. Sprinkle vegetable mixture evenly over bottom of pie plate. Arrange waffles, slightly overlapping, around edge of pie plate; press lightly into vegetable mixture.

  3. In Classic Batter Bowl, vigorously whisk cottage cheese, flour and 1 egg using Stainless Whisk until well blended. Whisk in remaining eggs, milk, salt and black pepper; pour over vegetable mixture.

  4. Cover edge of waffles with 2- to 3-inch-wide strips of aluminum foil. Bake 45-50 minutes or until egg mixture is set. (A knife inserted near center will come out clean.) Remove from oven; sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup cheddar cheese. Let stand 5 minutes. Cut into wedges and serve using Slice 'N Serve®.
