I added 3 egg whites and made it with 3/4 cup cottage cheese helped to reduce the extra moisture from the cheese. I also added chopped spinach and it was delicious. Will definitely make this again. If you're following weight watchers it's 1 point per muffin. Read More

Excellent base recipe to tweak as desired. I followed the amounts temp and time and they came out great. I used regular cottage cheese (not lactaid) and about a half cup of shredded cheddar and omitted the canned chilies. I also added about a tablespoon of Dijon mustard and just a little maple bacon seasoning. The flavor and texture was very good. My 16 year old son also liked them. Read More

My family really enjoys these. One suggestion though when measuring the cottage cheese I use a large slotted spoon and kind of squeeze the liquid from the cottage cheese and place in the measure cup and then use the back of that spoon to squeeze a bit more out. You can then add more cottage cheese to the measure cup and do the same thing. It leaves you with a firmer egg muffin. Add any vegetables and seasoning your family likes. I avoid adding cheese unless I am 100% certain that it is lactose free. This is a nice recipe to take to gatherings and be able to say it is both lactose and gluten free. Read More

Great recipe on it's own as well as one you can play with. Add your own favorite omelette ingredients & garnish countless ways. A tiny pinch of dried dill & a few grinds of nutmeg were among a few of my flourishes. I can make this 100 times & never get bored with the possibilities! Read More
