I’ve been working on more healthy meal ideas! You’re going to love these Easy Cottage Cheese Eggs For Breakfast. These cheesy eggs are so fluffy, moist and delicious. They really just taste like fluffy eggs which is great if you don’t love cottage cheese but are looking to add some to your meals for added protein. I love adding a sprinkle of crumbled feta cheese and chives on top for extra flavor. If you love this recipe, be sure to check out our Raspberry Greek Yogurt Bowls too!

Increasing Protein in Meals
I am not a nutritionist but I am a mom and I am always looking to keep our family healthy. A few weeks ago I started strength training exercises and eating more protein. I spoke with a trainer who has taught me a lot about building muscle and burning fat. My regular fitness routine went through a lot of changes over the last few years and I’ve been searching for exercises I enjoy that will also strengthen my body. I’ve really been enjoying the exercises and learning more about foods that fuel my body. I’ve learned that in order to build muscle, my body needs more protein. Cottage Cheese packs 25 grams of protein in one cup. One serving size is 1/2 a cup so adding cottage cheese to eggs is an awesome way to get in added protein.
How to Make Easy Cottage Cheese Eggs
This recipe is great for about 4 people. You can always adjust the amount of eggs and cottage cheese based on your needs. First, crack 6 eggs into a bowl and whisk together. Next, Add a cup of cottage cheese and stir. Add salt and pepper to taste. Melt a little butter in a skillet on medium heat. Pour in the egg mixture and cook.
Be sure to stir your eggs a few times while cooking. You also don’t want to over cook your eggs. The eggs will look more moist once they are cooked since the cottage cheese is moist.
Once the eggs are cooked, you can add chives and feta crumbles on top. You could also add a side of bacon or sausage. I added a Dave’s Killer Bread English muffin for an extra 6 grams of protein. These eggs divided into 4 for our family with an added English muffin and berries is about 21 grams of protein per person. You can also add additional eggs at 6 grams each.
