This summer breakfast toast has been a staple among my weekly menu. It's quick. It's easy. And it doesn't heat up my poor little kitchen much at all. While one lonely slice of toast might not seem like much, this is a rather filling little dish that's full of healthy fats and protein to keep you going and powering through your morning!
Healthy fats? What - you thought all fats were bad? Nope!
Your body needs healthy fats.
Healthy fats keep your skin smooth, energize you, provide essential fatty-acids, and even help with vitamins that your body needs!
I've been on this kick lately where I 'fluff' my eggs by adding in cottage cheese. I'll be honest, the idea sounded a bit weird to me at first but I gave it a try and thought it was pretty brilliant!
The cottage cheese gives an added boost of protein and nearly doubles the amount of egg that you get once scrambled. And don't worry, if you're not a fan of cottage cheese you really won't notice it in there much... if at all. Quite a lot of the cottage cheese seems to disappear or melt in with the egg.
If my four year old can eat it, and the cottage cheese can go completely unnoticed, I think you're good to go!
I served mine with a few strawberries and a drizzle of sriracha for added color and taste. Plus, I'm a total sucker for any sort of hot sauce these days. But, if you're not a fan of rooster sauce, no problem - just don't added it on!
