For my large family and company, I double this recipe and prepare in large pan. It reheats very well in case of extras.

(Edited to add: Today I mixed up the eggs when I realized I did not have any cottage cheese on hand. I experimented with a tub of Philadephia cooking cream in place of the cottage cheese and it was also wonderful – just another option in case you ever have that predicament.
