In a large bowl, place the entire 5.2 oz. hash brown mixture. Pour 4 cups hot water over the hash browns, and let stand for 10 minutes. Drain, and pat off any extra moisture with a paper towel. In a large bowl, combine 5 well-beaten eggs, 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese, ? cup cottage cheese, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper, 1/8 teaspoon hot sauce, and 1 chopped green onion. Add drained hash browns, and mix thoroughly. Pour mixture into a deep-dish pie plate that has been sprayed with cooking oil spray. Sprinkle with crumbs from 6 slices of cooked bacon and a dash of paprika. Cover with plastic wrap or aluminum foil and refrigerate at least 3 hours (or overnight). Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes, or until mixture is set. (You can check for doneness by inserting a clean knife in the center, and it should come out clean.) Cut into wedges, and serve immediately. This breakfast goes well with cherry tomato halves or sliced tomatoes. I also served mine with freshly made hot cocoa. Delish!
