English Muffin with Whipped Cottage Cheese and Jam with A Broccoli & Cheese Omelet

English Muffin with Whipped Cottage Cheese and Jam with A Broccoli & Cheese Omelet

This breakfast has been on repeat for over a week, and it is because it is DELICIOUS!

It is PACKED full of protein and is extremely east to put together. 

It is only 4-5 WW points depending on brands used and only 267-269 calories on Healthi Calorie Command.

Here is what you will need:

  • Mini food processor or mini blender
  • Light English muffins
  • Low fat cottage cheese
  • Jam of choice, I use Good Good. Order HERE
  • Cooked broccoli
  • Fat free American cheese
  • Egg beaters
  • Seasonings of choice

My Nutri Bullet is a game changer in the kitchen. This is a little beast when it comes to need something fast and in smaller batches. This is what I use to make my whipped cottage cheese. Click HERE for one. 

I love the light english muffins, I get mine from Shop Rite and they are less expensive than the name brand ones. 

Any cottage cheese that you like to eat will do but I HIGHLY recommend this brand from Good Culture or Daisy brand. Those come out the creamiest and smoothest when it comes to making the whipped cottage cheese. 

I found the most AMAZING jam from Good Good and I will not be buying anything other than this one from now on. Grab yours HERE

I grab these bags from Aldi, they are SUPER cheap, and I could eat an entire bag to myself. 

Another grab from Aldi and a healthier alternative to whole eggs and just looks more appealing than egg whites. 

My all-time favorite spices and seasonings are from Dak’s Spices, Grab yours HERE and use code CHEFALLIE for a discount

 

Here is how to make the whipped cottage cheese:

  1. Place the cottage cheese into a mini food processor or mini blender and just blend it until smooth and creamy
  2. You can certainly add some flavoring or sweetener, but it is good just the way it is

 

Here is how to make the small omelet:

  1. In a non-stick pan spray lightly with avocado oil
  2. Place the chopped broccoli into the pan, season as you wish
  3. Pour the eggbeaters over the broccoli and season again to your liking
  4. Cover the pan and cook on low until the egg is just bout cooked all the way
  5. Place cheese on half and fold over creating the omelet
  6. Cover again to melt cheese
  7. While cheese is melting place the english muffin into the toaster on “bagel” setting 
  8. Put the whipped cottage cheese on, then the jam
  9. Enjoy your meal
