Cottage Cheese Scrambled Eggs


Cottage Cheese Scrambled Eggs
Who doesn't like scrambled eggs? Who doesn't like cheese? Ok...maybe there are some crazy people out there that don't like either, but hey, we're talking about me right now :) I MUST have cheese with my scrambled eggs. It is a MUST. In fact, several years ago, a good friend of mine, Monica, taught me how to make the BEST cheesy scrambled eggs EVER. But that will be another post! This post is a strange twist on cheesy scrambled eggs...I used cottage cheese. I know, you're probably thinking, that is disgusting, but hey, you only live once...or as the young people say: YOLO. This is super easy and it gives a nice creamy texture and taste to your scrambled eggs. Hope you enjoy, let me know your thoughts! To print recipe, click here: Cottage Cheese Scrambled Eggs
Ingredients:
2 Large Eggs
2 Tablespoons Large Curd Cottage Cheese
Shredded Cheese to your liking
Non-Stick Cooking Spray
Parsley, Salt and Pepper to Taste
Directions:
1) Heat a medium skillet to medium heat and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
2) Crack two eggs and drop them into the skillet. FYI: The best way to crack an egg without getting shells in your mixture is to lightly tap it on a flat surface, then empty the contents into the pan. If you're worried you will still get shells, crack the eggs into a separate bowl, make sure there are not egg shells, then add to the pan.

3) Add 1 Tablespoon of cottage cheese per egg. So this recipe, add 2 Tablespoons.

4) Slowly stir the eggs and cottage cheese on medium heat so that they scramble together.
5) Add parsley, salt and pepper to your liking. Top with a bit of shredded cheese and ENJOY! See how easy that was?!
