We are always here for an egg hack. Whether it's a tip for frying, peeling, or cracking, we are the first in line to give it a go. So you bet we had to share the internet's new favorite fluffy egg trick. We present to you: the cottage cheese scramble.
Whether mixed into pasta sauce as a cream substitute or added to your homemade ice cream recipe for extra protein, cottage cheese is being used as a secret ingredient by professional chefs and home cooks alike. Most people either love it or hate it (there have been quite a few heated debates amongst the Hunker team), but that hasn't stopped it from taking over TikTok the past few weeks. And just when we thought we'd seen it all, chef and popular creator @jakecohen mixed it into their scramble. Here's exactly how Cohen achieves "the fluffiest, creamiest eggs."
It's rather simple, actually. For every four eggs you whisk up, add 1/4 cup of cottage cheese. Cook in a bit of olive oil over medium heat until soft curds form. The chef then puts it on a piece of toast with a sprinkle of chives, but straight up would be mighty fine too. Ready to put your cottage cheese reservations aside and give it a go? We sure are!
