Total time



    *Makes 12

    • 10 large eggs
    • 1 cup cottage cheese
    • 1/2 cup shredded cheese (swiss, cheddar, Monterey jack, etc. whatever you like!)
    • 1/4 cup spinach, chopped
    • 1/2 cup red or white onion, finely diced
    • 8-10 cherry tomatoes cut in half
    • A pinch of salt & pepper or to taste


    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 12 cup muffin tin generously with oil, or use silicone muffin cups (no oil needed) - but don't use paper muffin cups.
    2. Combine the eggs and cottage cheese in a blender and blend until smooth. The texture will be fluffy.
    3. Stir in the cheese, spinach, salt & pepper.
    4. Pour mixture into muffin tin or liners until 1/2-3/4 full.
    5. Add the cherry tomatoes to each cup.
    6. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until eggs are cooked.
    7. Cool for a few minutes in the cups/muffin tin & then serve.
