    This is my all-time favorite egg recipe. It's so darn simple, and it tastes divine. These eggs are prepared like scrambled eggs, but don't taste the same; they're much creamier, and they actually keep quite well in the fridge as leftovers. I eat them wrapped in a warm whole wheat tortilla...YUM!!!

    Ranch Eggs

    4 eggs, lightly beaten
    1/4 c. cottage cheese
    2 tbsp. diced green chilies
    1/4-1/3 c. shredded sharp Cheddar

    Combine all ingredients.

    Melt one tbsp. butter in a skillet over low heat, and cook eggs over medium-low heat, scraping skillet constantly after the first 2-3 minutes. Do not overcook, and remove from heat immediately when eggs are set. Eggs will be smooth and creamy. Add salt and pepper to taste.

    Serves two. Easily doubled for a family or halved for a single serving.

    Enjoy!

    Quote:Hi Standard!

    Green chilies are not at all hot (I don't like jalapenos or even banana peppers). Green chilies are very mild and a little sweet, I think; they come in tiny little 4-oz. cans at the grocery store. These eggs definitely won't taste the same with bell peppers. Give green chilies a try! I think you'll be surprised!

    Quote:Me either, before I tried this...I will say that the cottage cheese curds melt, so they just add a rich, creamy texture and flavor to the eggs. YUMMY!
