    Emily Elizabeth's Note:

    Garlic lovers and health nuts only! This single serving recipe is an extremely simple, yet flavorful variation on scrambled eggs. The cottage cheese adds a moist texture and the garlic gives it great flavor. Both spinach and garlic have wonderful health benefits (antioxidants, disease prevention, high vitamin content) and egg whites are a wonderful source of protein so it's a great way to start out your day! (Try adding cooked diced potatoes once and awhile - it's fantastic!)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat a non-stick skillet over medium/high heat. (Optional: add a tsp of olive oil if you would like more healthy oil in your diet).
    2. 2
      Cook frozen spinach until all excess water has evaporated (takes about 2-3 minutes - you can prep garlic and onions during this time if you like).
    3. 3
      Add garlic and onions to skillet and cook until fragrant (about 1-2 minutes).
    4. 4
      Add egg whites and scramble until partly cooked then add cottage cheese and continue to scramble with your spatula mixing everything together.
    5. 5
      Cook for about 3-5 minutes or until egg whites are fully cooked and cottage cheese is bubbly and has begun to evaporate. It should have a creamy yet solid texture. Add salt to taste.
    6. 6
      (NOTE: It will not get bubbly - or as creamy - if you use drier cottage cheese, like the ones in the single serving containers).

      Quick, easy, filling! With the addition of 1 tsp of healthy oil, this is 4 WW PointsPlus. Thanks for posting.

      Very good! I liked the texture that the cottage cheese gave this. I didn't add salt and didn't think it was necessary. Great healthy breakfast! Thanks!

      What a wonderful breakfast. I have to admit that I was a bit worried when I added the cottage cheese because the eggs became very watery. I trusted the recipe and kept cooking for 5 more minutes. I was rewarded with very creamy, flavorful eggs. I will definitely be making this often. Thanks!
