  • 4 eggs
  • 1-2 TB canola oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Directions:

  1. Put all ingredients in a blender or food processor & blend until smooth

  1. Cottage Cheese Omelets:
    • If you’re in for a protein-loaded breakfast, the cottage cheese omelet is the perfect recipe for you. To prepare, whisk eggs and cottage cheese along with your desired seasoning. Then, heat a pan over medium heat and add a dollop of butter. Once the butter melts, pour the egg-cottage cheese mixture, and cook until the omelet sets. Flip the omelet over, and cook for an additional minute on the other side. Add some fresh veggies, such as spinach or mushroom, or sprinkle some cheddar cheese to make it extra special.
  2. Cottage Cheese Parfaits:
    • For a protein-rich dessert, the cottage cheese parfait is an ideal choice. To prepare, take a jar, and start by layering cottage cheese, fresh berries, topped with some granola or crushed nuts. Repeat the layers until you reach the top of the jar. You can use any fruit of your choice, but berries are ideal as they are high in antioxidants and low in sugar.

Copycat Starbucks Egg Bites

I love the texture of the Egg Bites at Starbucks where my egg bites always had a texture that was too light.

All you need to do is put the base ingredients (eggs, egg whites, spices, cottage cheese) in the blender and stir in the remaining ingredients you wish to remain whole (such as sausage, bacon, cheese, vegetables) before cooking.
