Just made these, and they are truly the best eggs I have ever ate. Now I want to know what other simple foods I've been butchering all my life.

Delicious!!! Easy to make. I added a little pepper sauce to my eggs to give them a little more kick. Family liked the full flavor of the eggs seasoned with just S&P. I will make them again. Never thought to use cottage cheese in scrambled eggs.
