Cottage Cheese And Scrambled Eggs

Scrambled eggs with cottage cheese are like a creamy, flavorful twist on a breakfast classic! Making them is super easy. Start by cracking eggs into a bowl, whisking them until they’re fluffy. Then, add a scoop of cottage cheese into the eggs and mix it together. Pour this mixture into a hot skillet and cook it, stirring gently until the eggs are set and creamy. The cottage cheese melts into the eggs, creating this creamy texture and adding a slightly tangy flavor. In no time, you’ve got these soft, velvety scrambled eggs that are rich and satisfying, perfect for a hearty breakfast or brunch.
