If you’re on the hunt for an easy, high-protein breakfast idea, try my Cottage Cheese Scrambled Eggs! Made with little more than just eggs and cottage cheese in just 5 minutes, this simple, endlessly customizable recipe is the absolute best way to start your day. 


  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup cottage cheese
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • Butter, oil, or cooking spray


  1. Add the eggs and cottage cheese to a small mixing bowl. Season with salt and black pepper. Whisk thoroughly.
  2. Add the butter, oil, or cooking spray to the bottom of a small nonstick pan over medium low heat.
  3. Pour the egg mixture into the pan. Use a rubber spatula to scrape the outer edges of the eggs towards the middle as the bottom starts to set. Continue to stir and gently fold until the eggs are fully set, but still have a creamy soft texture.
  4. Serve and enjoy!
