RECIPE

Kale & Mushroom Egg Bites with cottage cheese

"

These Kale & Mushroom Egg Bites are a bit of a riff on the beloved Starbuck’s version, but I’ve blended cottage cheese into the eggs for a fluffier bite + boost of protein. The kale and mushrooms are chopped small, sautéed to the perfect tenderness before being paired with Monterey Jack cheese in these delicious breakfast staples.
