Welcome to the fluffiest, tastiest scrambled eggs of your life. Oh, and they also pack an extra punch of protein.
If you’ve been watching my Instagram stories, you probably know what the secret ingredient is. If not…
It’s cottage cheese! Trust me when I say that adding cottage cheese to your scrambled eggs makes them extra fluffy, a little cheesy and perfectly salty. I have been inundated by DMs on Instagram about how to incorporate the cottage cheese so here’s your tutorial.
It’s as easy as adding a big forkful of whole milk cottage cheese to your cracked eggs.
And then beating with the fork to combine.
Melt some salted butter in a skillet (let it be stated for the record that butter is a NECESSARY ingredient for scrambled eggs). Do this over LOW HEAT so that the butter doesn’t brown or burn.
And then add the eggs. BE EASY with them! Eggs are delicate things. Don’t start stirring vigorously. Rather, use a spatula to gently stir.
As you gently stir, you’ll see the eggs starting to set. Note, a smily face spatula will make your egg-cooking experience happier. Highly recommend.
Almost there. The key is not to let the eggs brown anywhere. That results in weird tasting, dry scrambled eggs. The only time a little brown is acceptable is when you are frying an egg (again in lots of salted butter).
Right before you think your eggs are done cooking, take them off the heat. They will continue to cook after you remove them from the heat.
Again, trust me on the cottage cheese in your scrambled eggs. Promise me that you’ll cook them in butter and then report back.
