Notes

  • To make a balanced meal, pair with a complex carb like whole wheat toast, roasted potatoes, whole wheat pancakes/waffles, fruit, or a side salad!
  • Store cottage cheese frittata in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 5 days or in the freeze (you can individually wrap each piece for easy thawing!) for up to 3 months
  • Feel free to use any veggie in this recipe, however the water content may affect the resulting texture
  • You can substitute any cheese for feta or goat (I just recommend using a reduced fat kind to decrease saturated fat content!)
