Want a quick, healthy, and high protein dish that’s delicious? Try this Easy Cottage Cheese Casserole recipe! The best part? You only need a few ingredients!
Start this one by taking out a bowl big enough to mix all of your ingredients in and something to mix them with. I used a fork.
Add into your bowl 2 large whole eggs (beat them after adding), 4 cloves of minced garlic, 1 teaspoon of onion powder, 1 teaspoon of chili powder, 8 tablespoons of grated parmesan cheese, and 2 cups of cottage cheese.
Why cottage cheese? It’s cheap, packed with protein (casein which is slow digesting), bakes great, and the taste is easily masked by other flavors!
Give those ingredients a quick mix.
Continue by adding in 1 1/2 cups of chopped and washed spinach or kale. I went with kale today.
Mix everything together good.
Pour your easy cottage cheese casserole mix into a baking dish and evenly distribute it.
Put your dish into the oven on 350F/176C for around 20 minutes or until your edges are bubbling. Cooking time will depending on how big or small your dish is. The “thicker” your casserole is, the longer it’ll take to cook.
Remove it from the oven once it starts to bubble, let it cool a bit, and devour!
