Like yogurt, I always have cottage cheese in my fridge since it’s such an easy source of protein. Sometimes I add it to my frittatas or waffles or make it the base of a breakfast bowl . Whisking cottage cheese into my scrambled eggs is almost too simple but definitely worth sharing. This is a great recipe for people who don’t like the taste of cottage cheese, but want to incorporate it into your meals because you can’t taste it.

Tips for perfect scrambled eggs

  • Pan: Use a nonstick pan sprayed with oil to ensure that the eggs don’t stick.
  • Cottage Cheese: Any brand of cottage cheese will work, but my favorite is Good Culture’s low-fat cottage cheese.
  • Cooking: Use a rubber spatula to gently fold the eggs over for about one and a half to two minutes until they are just set.

How to serve

  • Serve the eggs with whole grain toast and fresh berries.
  • Wrap them in a tortilla to make breakfast tacos or burritos.
  • Make breakfast sliders by putting the eggs in small potato buns. Add breakfast sausage or bacon for extra protein.
  • Finish off your eggs with your favorite toppings for a breakfast bowl.

SCRAMBLED EGG WITH COTTAGE CHEESE VARIATIONS:

  • Seasoning: Use different spices to change the flavors. For example, season with garlic and onion powders and dried basil and oregano for Italian or chili powder and cumin for Mexican.
  • Veggies: Add spinach, mushrooms, or bell peppers to the eggs.
  • Recipe Size: Double the recipe if you’re serving more people or halve it if you only need one serving.
