Cottage Cheese Scramble

Cottage Cheese Scramble

(3 servings)    Printable Version
  • 1/3 cup instant nonfat dry milk
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup cottage cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 dash pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 Tablespoon chives - chopped
This recipe produced very creamy, smooth scrambled eggs. The cottage cheese adds a lot of volume to the scramble, so it appeared that I'd used 6 eggs instead of just 3. I don't quite understand the use of dry milk. It didn't add anything to the flavor, so I'd advise using a 1/2 cup regular milk instead of the milk and water in the recipe. I served up my scramble in bell peppers. I cut the peppers in half, removed all the seeds and roasted the halves at 375 for 10 minutes until a bit softened. Final verdict: I liked these eggs, but I like eggs without cottage cheese a little bit better. (This recipe was submitted in 2002. It was tested and photographed in March 2014.)

Cottage Cheese Scrambled Eggs

This scramble has a creamy taste and texture thanks to cottage cheese and dry powdered milk. The ingredients may seem unusual, but the end result is fantastic.

I used salt free cottage cheese, I brought these by accident and I noticed they are not as watery as the one with salt added. I used scallions in the place of chives and I added spinach. YUMM!!

I, at first, thought this recipe was too watery during cooking which led me to cook it for a long time and it turned out rubbery. Ommiting the water didn't do it justice but straining the cottage cheese in a coffe filter worked wonders and the eggs were great. Also, a little less cottage cheese makes it a little less dense. The cottage cheese adds a protein kick that I like without adding too many calories. And very filling! I don't even need the toast!
