Ingredients

1 pound ground pork/sausage
2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp sage
1 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp clove

3 cups shredded potatoes, drained and pressed
1/4 cup butter, melted
12 ounces mild Cheddar cheese, shredded 
1/2 cup onion, shredded
1 (16 ounce) container cottage cheese
6 Large eggs

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9×13 inch square baking dish.

Place sausage in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat, and add seasonings (6 following the sausage in ingredients list) until evenly brown. Drain, crumble, and set aside.

In the prepared baking dish, stir together the shredded potatoes and butter. Line the bottom and sides of the baking dish with the mixture. In a bowl, mix the sausage, Cheddar cheese, onion, cottage cheese, and eggs. Pour over the potato mixture.
Bake 1 hour in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted into center of the casserole comes out clean. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving.
