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

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.
