I’m trying to be better about repeating recipes.
Even though repetition pains me.
I’m slowly re-making some older recipes on the blog, but adding new twists to keep them interesting! This recipe is based on a more savory bake – a Cottage Cheese and Egg Herb Bake I made back in June of 2011 (have I really been blogging that long?!).
Today’s version is more strange, but still good. This is a sweet egg bake! I used blueberries and basil, along with a little lemon stevia and cinnamon to make this a dessert-like breakfast.
Making a bake for breakfast may seem ambitious during the morning rush, but look back at the original post for a Practical Guide to making a morning egg bake. It’s really not so bad!
What results is a fluffy, souffle-like breakfast filled with bursting berries and the almost sweet, clove-like basil. Bursting with strange deliciousness.
My pics are from a version that I completely over-stuffed (it’s a chronic affliction). This has become a good thing in my book… but I have adjusted the recipe so that won’t happen to you. 😉
Blueberry-Basil Egg Bake
- 1/4 C cottage cheese
- 1/2 C egg whites
- 1/4 C blueberries
- 1/3 C basil leaves, chiffonade
- 1/4 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1/8 tsp cayenne
- 2-3 drops lemon liquid stevia (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Beat the eggs and cottage cheese together until well-combined and beginning to fluff. Add remaining ingredients and beat again to combine.
Pour into a greased ramekin (I used coconut oil spray) and bake for 35-40 mins.
- You may need to broil for 1-2 mins at the end to finish off the top. Be sure to watch closely so it doesn’t get too browned
- If you don’t have lemon stevia and still want the flavor, use a bit of your preferred sweetener and a twist of lemon.
