ingredients for cottage cheese pancakes

Ingredients

  • Large eggs: Eggs keep everything together and add some richness to the pancakes. Plus, they also contribute some protein and essential nutrients.
  • Cottage cheese: The star of the show! Cottage cheese adds creaminess and a subtle tang to the pancakes. It’s also a great source of protein. Feel free to use full fat or low fat cottage cheese. 
  • Vanilla extract: Adding vanilla extract enhances the flavor of the pancakes.
  • Honey or Agave: These natural sweeteners add a touch of sweetness to the pancakes without overpowering their flavor. You can use either one you prefer.
  • All purpose flour: Flour serves as the base of the pancake batter. I haven’t tested other flours, but I’m sure you could substitute whole wheat or a gluten free cup for cup flour if you want.
  • Baking powder: Baking powder helps the pancakes rise and become light and fluffy.
  • Kosher salt: A touch of salt helps balance out the overall flavor of the pancakes. 
  • Oil or Butter: You only need oil or butter to grease the pan.

How to Make Cottage Cheese Pancakes

1. Whisk Wet Ingredients:

  • In a bowl, combine the first 4 ingredients—eggs, cottage cheese, vanilla extract, and honey (or agave). Whisk until combined.

2. Prepare Dry Ingredients:

  • In a different bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients—flour, baking powder, and salt—until evenly mixed.

3. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients:

  • Pour the dry mixture into the bowl of wet mixture. Stir gently until just combined, being careful not to overmix. The batter should be slightly lumpy.

4. Preheat and Grease:

  • Heat a large sauté pan or griddle over medium heat. Lightly coat the surface with oil or butter to prevent sticking.

5. Cook Pancakes:

  • Pour about 2 tablespoons of the batter onto the preheated griddle for each pancake. Cook for approximately 2 minutes on the first side. You should see bubbles on the surface before you flip.

6. Flip and Cook:

  • Carefully flip the pancakes using a spatula and cook for an additional 2 minutes on the other side, or until they are golden brown and cooked through.

7. Serve:

  • Once cooked, transfer the pancakes to a serving plate. Serve warm with your favorite toppings and enjoy!

The Right Cottage Cheese for Pancakes

Like I mentioned before, cottage cheese is a good source of protein – about 25 grams per cup! When it comes to choosing which kind of cottage cheese for pancakes, there’s no right or wrong answer. You can use full fat or low fat, small curd or large curd. Pick your favorite brand and get to making these pancakes ASAP!

Tips for Making Cottage Cheese Pancakes

  1. Mix Gently: Combine your wet and dry ingredients gently until they’re just mixed. A few lumps are okay! Overmixing the batter can leave you with tough, chewy pancakes. 
  2. Let the Batter Rest: Allow the batter to rest a bit before making the pancakes so that baking powder has a little time to activate. This will ensure you get light, fluffy and delicious pancakes. 
  3. Grease the Pan Between Each: Use any oil you prefer to grease the pan – olive, avocado, or vegetable work great. Just make sure you keep reapplying between each batch of pancakes to prevent sticking, ensure even cooking and get those crispy edges we all love. 
  4. Flip Carefully: Cook your pancakes over medium heat, and don’t flip them until bubbles form on the surface for that perfect golden brown finish.

Toppings

Pancakes, in general, have always been a blank canvas for adding delicious toppings, and these pancakes with cottage cheese are no different. Here are some topping ideas:

  • Maple syrup, a tried and true classic pancake topping
  • Fresh berries
  • Sliced bananas
  • Greek yogurt or a drizzle of nut butter for an extra bump of protein

Additions You Can Add to Your Pancakes

Get creative by adding in additional ingredients to your pancake recipe with cottage cheese. Here are some ideas:

  • Chopped nuts, such as pecans or walnuts
  • Chocolate chips for a little extra sweetness
  • Shredded coconut
  • Your favorite fruit like blueberries or bananas
  • Lemon zest

This asparagus quiche recipe is a total showstopper! Flaky pastry crust, tender asparagus spears, and a savory cheese filling come together for a satisfying and impressive dish.

The buttery scent of this asparagus quiche recipe in the oven may win you one or two marriage proposals—or at least it will have the neighbors wandering by to snatch up a slice! It’s packed with savory, cozy flavor, perfect for spring brunches or light dinners with a crisp glass of white wine.

Why we love this recipe: This asparagus quiche is worth every second of time for the satisfaction you’ll get from making a quiche from scratch. Plus, it’s easy to make in advance. We served it to guests who went gaga over this one. Come: let’s make quiche!

How to make this asparagus quiche recipe: an overview!

In under 2 hours, you’ve got a complete masterpiece of an asparagus quiche recipe: made completely from scratch. That includes a homemade quiche crust. Want a shortcut? You can do store-bought crust too: see below. But we highly recommend the homemade crust: it’s crispy, buttery perfection. Here’s what to expect from this process timing-wise:

Make the quiche dough20 minutes, active
Freeze the crust15 minutes, inactive
Blind bake the dough + make the filling25 minutes, active
Bake the quiche40 to 50 minutes, inactive

Here is an overview in photographs of how to make this asparagus quiche. For all the details, jump to the full recipe below.

Step 1: Blind bake the quiche crust.

Step 1: Make the quiche crust (go this quiche crust recipe for instructions). Freeze it for 15 minutes. Blind bake the crust with pie weights at 375°F for 15 minutes.

Step 2: Saute the asparagus and make the filling.

Step 2: Make the filling: sauté the asparagus. Whisk together the eggs, milk, cream, salt, and pepper. Place grated smoked mozzarella cheese in bottom of the crust. Pour the egg mixture over the top. Sprinkle the sauteed asparagus and feta cheese crumbles.

Step 3: Bake the quiche.

Step 3: Bake the quiche for 40 to 50 minutes at 350°F.

Tips for homemade quiche crust

Ever made a quiche crust from scratch? It’s pretty simple, but you do need a few dough-making techniques. Working with dough takes time and practice. If it’s your first time, give yourself patience and grace.

  • Use a standard 9-inch pie plate, not deep dish. Deep dish will be too thick for the filling amount here.
  • A pastry cloth can be helpful (optional). It helps for rolling out the dough so it doesn’t stick on the counter. If you don’t have one, just lightly dust the counter with flour.
  • Use the tines of a fork to decorate the edge. This is easier than a fluted edge, though either works.
  • You’ll freeze the crust 15 minutes before blind baking it. This helps the crust to hold its shape while blind baking. This freezer method shortcuts refrigerating for a few hours. (You’re welcome!)

Blind baking is key for the crust

The biggest key to making an asparagus quiche recipe is blind baking the crust. Blind baking is baking a pie crust without the filling. This makes sure that crust is perfectly firm before you add the wet filling, which is especially important for a custard pie like a quiche because the filling is so wet. If you don’t blind bake, you’ll get soggy bottom crust for sure (we did!). Here’s what to know about blind baking and how to get the perfect flaky crust:

  • Prick holes with a fork all over the crust. This is called docking the crust: it makes it puff up less while in the oven.
  • Add pie weights: like dried beans or rice! You can use ceramic pie weights (we used these) to weigh down the crust so it doesn’t get too puffy. Or, you can use dried beans or dry rice! It doesn’t harm the beans or rice: you can still cook them as normal after using them as weights.

Shortcut: use store-bought crust

Yes, you can short-cut the effort to make your homemade crust and go with a store-bought pastry crust. Any type of purchased pie crust works (we don’t have a favorite brand since we always make our own). You’ll still need to blind bake the store-bought crust! So start in the recipe below at Step 3.

Make ahead instructions

Yes, it takes about 2 hours to make! But here’s the thing: only about 1 hour of it is active time. Even better: it saves VERY well. It’s so easy to make the night before, or even a few days in advance! Here’s what to do:

  • Make the entire quiche 1 to 3 days in advance. Then refrigerate it until serving!
  • Warm in a 200 degree oven for about 20 minutes before serving. It’s also delicious cold, but we like it warmed up.
  • Saves 5 days refrigerated. Wrap it in plastic or aluminum to keep it fresh.

Ways to serve asparagus quiche

This asparagus quiche recipe is a total showstopper! We served this at a spring birthday brunch for my mom and everyone went crazy over it. In fact, it was suddenly gone before we knew it! It was absolutely perfect for a festive occasion (it would be great for Easter or Mother’s Day). While recipe testing, we also ate it for dinner: which was perfect as well. Here are some ways to serve quiche:

Dietary notes

This asparagus quiche is vegetarian.

Frequently asked questions

Do I need to pre-cook the asparagus?

Pre-cooking the asparagus for a few minutes is essential to ensure it’s tender throughout the quiche.

How can I avoid a soggy quiche crust?

Soggy quiche crust can happen for a few reasons. Make sure your dough is chilled before baking to prevent it from melting too quickly. It’s essential to pre-bake (blind bake) the crust for a few minutes before adding the filling.

Can I use a store-bought pie crust?

Absolutely! Using a store-bought crust is a great time-saver. Just follow the package instructions for pre-baking.

How can I tell when my quiche is done?

The quiche is done when the center is no longer jiggly and a toothpick inserted comes out clean. The crust should also be golden brown.

Description

This asparagus quiche recipe is a total showstopper! Flaky pastry crust, tender asparagus spears, and a savory cheese filling come together for a satisfying and impressive dish.


Ingredients

For the quiche crust*

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 to 6 tablespoons ice water

For the asparagus quiche

  • 4 ounces asparagus (about 8 thin stalks)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • Fresh ground black pepper
  • 3 ounces (about ¾ cup) smoked mozzarella or smoked gouda, grated
  • ¼ cup feta cheese crumbles

Instructions

  1. Make the quiche crust: Preheat the oven to 375°F. In a medium bowl, mix the all-purpose flour, kosher salt, and baking powder. Slice the butter into pieces, then cut it into the flour mixture using a pastry blender until a coarse meal texture is obtained. Sprinkle the ice water over the flour 1 tablespoon at a time, mixing gradually with fork until the dough sticks together. Add additional water by the tablespoon until the dough comes together but is not sticky. Form the dough into a ball.
  2. Roll out and freeze the dough: If you have a pastry cloth, set it up and dust it with flour; otherwise, flour a clean work surface. Put on a rolling pin cover (optional), and either way, dust the pin in flour. Roll the dough to an even 12-inch circle (which corresponds to the 9-inch pie pan). Use a rolling pin to transfer the dough to the pie pan (make sure it is standard and not deep dish). Fold the overhanging dough backwards and seal it to form a rim. Then press it with the tines of a fork to decorate the edges (see the photos). Use a fork to gently prick holes in the bottom and sides of the crust (this helps it to not puff up while blind baking). Freeze the crust for 10 minutes before blind baking. 
  3. Blind bake the crust: Remove the dough from the freezer and place a sheet of parchment paper on top of the crust. Fill the dough with pie weights (we used two sets of these), dry beans, or dry rice. Bake for 15 minutes, then carefully remove the parchment and weights and bake additional 8 minutes until the bottom is lightly browned. Remove from the oven and go to Step 5.
  4. Sauté the asparagus: Meanwhile, wash the asparagus and trim off the ends. Cut the stalks into bite-sized pieces. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium high heat. Add the asparagus, ¼ teaspoon kosher salt, and a few grind black pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the largest pieces are tender, about 5 to 8 minutes. This depends on the thickness and maturity of the asparagus, so it’s different every time! Taste and remove when it’s just tender and still bright green, but not crunchy.
  5. Reduce the oven heat: When the crust is done blind baking, remove it from the oven and reduce the heat of the oven to 350°F. 
  6. Make the filling: In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, cream, ¾ teaspoon kosher salt, and several grinds black pepper. Place the grated smoked mozzarella cheese in bottom of the crust. Pour the egg mixture over the top. Sprinkle the sauteed asparagus and feta cheese crumbles.
  7. Bake: Bake 40 to 50 minutes minutes, until the center is set and the top is lightly browned. Cool at least two hours. It’s easiest to make the night before, so you can refrigerate until serving. Re-warm in a 200°F oven for 20 minutes. (You can also serve it cold.) Leftovers stay for 5 days refrigerated. 

Notes

*You can also use a storebought pastry crust to shortcut some time. You’ll still need to blind bake the crust, so start with Step 3.

Tips for Planning a Special Mother’s Day Breakfast

Planning a delicious breakfast for mom on her special day requires some careful thought and advance preparation to ensure that everything goes smoothly and your mom feels truly loved. Here are a few tips to help you plan the perfect breakfast for your mom:

  1. Know her preferences. Take some time to think about your mom’s favorite breakfast foods. Does she prefer sweet or savory? Does she have any dietary restrictions or allergies? Knowing her preferences will help you craft a menu she will truly enjoy.
  2. Prepare in advance. To avoid any last-minute stress, plan your menu focusing on not only mom’s preferences but also dishes that can be prepared in part – or entirely – ahead.
  3. Create a bright, cozy atmosphere. Decorate the table with fresh flowers, use bright linens, and use your good china to make your mom feel extra special.
  4. Get the whole family involved. If you’re hosting a family brunch, assign tasks to different family members, from decorating the table to cooking various dishes. Not only will this lighten the load for you, but it will also make the breakfast feel more like a collective effort.

For a Mother’s Day brunch, start the meal with a classic brunch cocktail, like a Bloody Mary or Mimosa (champagne and orange juice).
 
In addition, here are two recipes that I love to serve at a special occasion breakfast or brunch, that don’t fit in any of the above categories:

Mango Banana Smoothie

This Banana Mango Smoothie is bright and bursting with fresh flavors that will transport your taste buds straight to the tropics. The sweetness of the mango and banana perfectly balances the tangy citrus of the orange and lime, while a hint of mint adds a refreshing and cooling effect. Each sip is like a burst of sunshine that will leave you feeling invigorated and ready to take on the day.

Sweet and Spicy Twisted Bacon

These addictively delicious Spiced Bacon Twists are chewy, crunchy and both sweet and savory. Salty, smoky bacon is dredged in a sweet and spicy brown sugar mixture and then baked until crispy. The resulting bacon has the most wonderful caramel taste, with a bit of zing.

You won’t believe the flavor in these fast and easy egg tacos! The vegetarian “taco meat” filling works for any meal of the day.

Egg tacos

Looking for a 5-minute breakfast idea, an easy lunch, or a fast and easy dinner? Well, here’s a recipe that’s all three at once. (Audible gasp.) Meet these amazing egg tacos! This is one of our favorite kitchen tricks of all time. We created it as a dare from my sister to create a dinner recipe that can be made in 5 minutes. Sounds impossible, but it works!

Did you know that eggs can taste like taco meat? Yes, somehow the spiced scrambled eggs filling channels the flavor of taco meat. Alex and I have used this trick over and over to get fast dinners on the table, and our kids love it! It works for easy breakfasts or lunch ideas, too. This one’s in our arsenal of recipes every cook should know.

The key ingredients for egg tacos

Wait a minute: egg tacos that taste like they have meat? Yes, this trick is like kitchen magic. These scrambled eggs are perfectly seasoned and they take only 5 minutes to make. Here are the ingredients you need for the filling:

  • Eggs: Buy organic eggs if you can, and local eggs if possible.
  • Chili powder, garlic powder, cumin, and salt: You’ll notice it’s a heavy amount of seasoning: ½ tablespoon each for the chili powder, garlic powder and cumin. But trust us: this is what brings the meaty flavor!
  • Tortillas: Flour tortillas are our preference, but as a gluten free recipe this works with corn tortillas or grain free tortillas.
  • Toppings: We like pico de gallo, red onion, and cilantro, but you can use any toppings you like.

How to cook the eggs: a few tips!

The key to these egg tacos is the special method for cooking the eggs. Many people over cook scrambled eggs, and break them into too small of pieces. This method makes luscious folds of eggs, so the filling texture holds up in the tacos. Here’s what to know:

  • Cook over medium low heat. Don’t have the heat too high: you’ll want it just above low heat.
  • Scrape with a spatula as the eggs solidify, for 3 to 4 minutes. They’ll start to form together into a meat-like texture.
  • Don’t stir too much! You don’t want tiny bits of eggs, you’ll want it to hold together into a cohesive texture.

Toppings for egg tacos

Once you’ve cooked the eggs (in just 5 minutes!), all you have to do is top the tacos! For this egg tacos recipe, we tried to keep it as simple as possible. But if you have more time, the sky’s the limit! Here’s what we added to these tacos, then a few more ideas to get your wheels turning:

  • Salsa fresca or pico de gallo: We used store-bought to keep it quick, but you can also use homemade.
  • Jarred salsa: Or go traditional with a jar of red salsa or salsa verde.
  • Red onion: Use thinly sliced fresh onion (rinse and drain it a few times to remove the bite, if you like!). Pickled red onion adds a tangy flair.
  • Cilantro: Quickly tear off a few leaves for a great garnish
  • Lettuce: Crunchy romaine lettuce adds another nice texture
  • Sour cream: Use standard or dairy free sour cream.
  • Jalapeno: Add a kick! Try thin sliced fresh or pickled jalapenos.
  • Crema or sauce: Try Cilantro Lime Crema, Cilantro Lime Sauce or Creamy Cilantro Sauce.

Tip: how to warm tortillas

You absolutely must warm your tortillas for egg tacos: it gives them just the right supple texture. No one likes a tough, cold tortilla! While you’re at it, place them in a tortilla warmer to keep them toasty while you’re eating (here’s the tortilla warmer we use). Here are two ways for how to warm tortillas:

  • Stovetop: Char the tortillas by placing them on an open gas flame on medium for a few seconds per side, flipping with tongs, until they are slightly blackened and warm (this also infuses a charred flavor).
  • Oven: Wrap a few tortillas (in packets of no more than 5) in aluminum foil and place on the oven grates to 350°F for 15 to 20 minutes.

Sides to serve with egg tacos

Want to make these egg tacos into a full-blown meal? They work as a fast breakfast, healthy lunch or easy dinner. If we only have 5 minutes, we just whip these up and scarf them down. But if we have a few extra minutes, here are some sides we like to pair:

Effortless Elegance: Toasted Bagels with Egg Salad and Smoked Salmon

Breakfast shouldn’t be complicated, but it should always be delicious. That’s the philosophy behind these Toasted Bagels with Egg Salad and Smoked Salmon. In our house, the love for both egg salad and smoked salmon runs deep (my husband Robert can attest to that!). One morning, the idea struck: why not combine these two favorites into a single, irresistible breakfast creation? The result was pure magic!

Here’s what makes this recipe such a winner:

  • Classic base, enticing extras. The recipe starts with a familiar and well-loved egg salad foundation, then adds chives, green onion, and paprika for a burst of flavor and texture.
  • Customizable. While the recipe is delicious as is, you can modify it to your tastes – use different fresh herbs, red onion or shallots in place of the green onion, and/or substitute crispy bacon strips for the salmon.
  • Simple yet impressive. This dish requires minimal effort but delivers a restaurant-worthy combination of creamy egg salad, smoky salmon, and toasted bagels.
  • Balanced flavors and textures. The creamy egg salad contrasts beautifully with the delicate smokiness of the salmon, while the chives and green onion add pops of color and freshness. The toasted bagel provides a satisfying crunch.
  • Make-ahead friendly. Perfect for meal prepping! Prepare the egg salad and store and in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Toast the bagels and assemble when ready for a quick and delicious breakfast.
  • Versatile and crowd-pleasing. Easy enough for every day while elegant enough for entertaining, this dish is the perfect choice for any occasion.

Smoked Salmon Egg Sandwich Ingredients

Here’s what you’ll need to make these special breakfast treats:

  • Large eggs
  • Mayonnaise
  • Dijon mustard
  • Green onions
  • Fresh chives
  • Paprika
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Bagels
  • Smoked salmon

How to Make Egg Salad

For the egg salad, the first step is to cook the eggs. Here are instructions for hard boiling eggs in an Instant Pot, or on the stovetop. I prefer the Instant Pot method, because the eggs come out perfect, every time. No gray shadow around the yolks, no over-done (or under-done) yolks, and super easy to peel with no damage. What more could you ask for from a hard-boiled egg?

Hard-boiled eggs – Instant Pot method

  1. Let eggs sit at room temperature for 20 to 30 minutes. (If you don’t have time to let your eggs sit at room temperature, it’s okay. Just increase the Instant Pot cook time to 9 minutes.)
  2. Place wire rack (or steamer basket) in Instant Pot along with 1 to 1 1/2 cups water.
  3. Place eggs on rack, spacing out as evenly as possible (I cook 6 at a time and use the other 2 in another recipe). Seal and cook on high for 7 minutes.
  4. When the timer goes off, immediately release the pressure, following the “quick release” method.
  5. Carefully remove eggs (they will be hot!) and immediately place in a bowl of ice water. Let rest in water until eggs are cold to the touch.
  6. Remove from water and pat dry.

Hard-boiled eggs – Stovetop method

  1. In a large saucepan, place eggs in one layer and cover with water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to simmer and cook for 6 to 8 minutes.
  2. Remove pan from heat and leave eggs in hot water for another 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Carefully remove eggs (they will be hot!) and immediately place in a bowl of ice water. Let rest in water until eggs are cold to the touch.
  4. Remove from water and pat dry.

Assemble Egg Salad

  1. Remove shells from hard-boiled eggs.
  2. Chop eggs and place in a medium mixing bowl.
  3. Stir in mayonnaise, mustard, onion and chives.
  4. Season to taste with paprika, salt and pepper. Adjust the mayonnaise and mustard, if necessary.

Quick Tip

Making egg salad is not an exact science; it depends largely on the size and freshness of your ingredients. My proportions are a good place to start; add more mustard for more zing and/or more mayonnaise for more moisture. Be careful with the onions – if you’re using large green onions and they’re very fresh, you may need only one.

How to Assemble a Smoked Salmon Bagel with Egg Salad

Lightly toast bagel halves. Divide egg salad equally among the bagels, spreading into an even layer. Lay salmon slices on top. Garnish with chopped chives, if desired.

Additional Toppings or Variations

Here are some ideas on how to vary these breakfast bagel sandwiches; some changes make them healthier, others change the flavor a bit:

  • Substitute 1 heaping tablespoon greek yogurt for 1 tablespoon of the mayonnaise.
  • Use yellow mustard instead of Dijon.
  • Substitute chopped shallots for the green onion.
  • Add chopped fresh dill – or use in place of the chives.
  • For the non-fish eaters in your home, substitute crispy cooked bacon strips for the smoked salmon.
  • Use toasted mini bagels or pumpernickel cocktail bread instead of the regular-size bagels, and serve as an hors d’oeuvre or a side dish for a brunch.

Serving a Smoked Salmon Egg Salad Bagel

Place assembled bagels on a serving platter, or on individual breakfast plates. Platter can be part of a buffet, or passed at the table. They are delicious alongside Pimiento Cheese Sandwiches, as part of a luncheon or Master’s viewing party!

Note that these sandwiches are on the rich side; Robert and I find one half, combined with a serving of fresh fruit, is plenty for each of us.

Salmon Egg Salad Bagel FAQs

Can a Smoked Salmon Bagel Sandwich with Egg Salad be made ahead of time? What is the best way to store it?

Egg Salad can be made up to 24 hours in advance, covered and refrigerated. Sandwiches can be assembled up to 2 hours ahead, covered and refrigerated (any longer and the bread can become soggy). Bring to room temperature before serving.

What is the difference between lox and smoked salmon?

Lox is salmon that’s been cured or brined with salt and not smoked; smoked salmon may or may not be salt cured or brined, then hot or cold smoked. “Nova” lox is salmon from Nova Scotia that has been salt cured (usually with less salt than lox) and also cold smoked.

Can you put egg with salmon?

Yes, definitely! The egg and salmon pair together perfectly, and make a delicious, high protein, low calorie combination.
