 Served with Cottage Cheese Pancakes


This is a nice change of pace from ordinary scrambled eggs.  I love cream cheese bits in my scrambled eggs and thought to change things up a bit by adding cottage cheese as well.  A good thought it turns out, as this was delicious, plus the protein content in this breakfast just went up a notch.

If you like, you can garnish the scrambled eggs with chopped green onions.  I love green onions and eggs.  Check out my favorite omelet here. 

Chopped fresh basil is another idea or chopped chives to garnish these eggs. Yum!

If this recipe is for one person, you can halve the recipe, or keep in mind that leftovers store quite well in the refrigerator.

If you would like to add even more protein to your breakfast, you could think of crumbling sausage or adding cooked bacon bits in with the scrambled eggs.

This egg recipe would be wonderful with sliced tomato on the side, or fry the tomatoes and sprinkle with Italian seasoning while frying in light-tasting olive oil.  Such a delicious side with the eggs.

You could also serve this breakfast with slices of bacon or your favorite breakfast sausages.  

This low-carb breakfast will satiate for hours.  Enjoy!
