butter well a 9”x 2 1/2 “ spring-form pan; attach strips of waxed paper to the buttered sides of the pan, and trim paper to level with top of pan; and butter the paper generously.

mix one egg in a medium-size bowl, then add the drained potatoes and soft butter .
mix it all together: the fork looks proper, but clean hands do a quicker job of it; mix in some salt and pepper, which I forgot until several steps later, oh, well.
line the pan with the potato mixture; in a warmed 375 degree oven, bake 20-25 minutes or until the top edge begins to brown nicely
while that cooks, mix the rest of the eggs in the same now empty bowl, add drained cottage cheese
and the other cheeses
Grab some fresh parsley , chop it up
and the chopped parsley,
and salt; mix well.
I should have let it get browner, but I thought it might get too brown on the second baking, but it did not
sprinkle bacon in pan.
then pour in the egg and cheese mixture
Return to the oven and continue cooking for about 45 minutes, or when eggs are set.
remove from oven, let cool a few minutes; then release sides of pan
and peel away waxed paper
Serve with zucchini ribbons if you like zucchini ribbons or just want something green on the plate.
