  • The crispy edges of the egg, the crunchy bacon, and the everything seasoning are the perfect match for the cottage cheese.

Ingredients

  • Sourdough bread – Cut thick. If you can’t find sourdough, feel free to substitute it with any other sturdy bread that can hold up the toppings.
  • Cottage cheese – Any kind and you can opt for a low-fat version if you’re watching calories.
  • Sunside-up egg – The star of the show! Cooked just enough so that the yolk is still runny, creating a delectable, velvety sauce for the toast.
  • Crispy bacon – Crumbled over the top for a delicious salty crunch. If you’re vegetarian or just not a fan, smoked tempeh makes a great substitute.
  • Everything bagel seasoning – This magical mix of sesame seeds, poppy seeds, dried onion, dried garlic, and salt adds a flavorful punch.

Chef Jenn’s Tips

  • Thick-cut sourdough is my bread of choice for cottage cheese toast, but any bread will work.
  • Double or triple this recipe to feed more diners.
  • Don’t add the cottage cheese to the bread too soon, or it’ll make your bread soggy.

Make It A Meal

This cottage cheese toast can certainly be a whole meal, but if you want to pair it with something, try it with fresh fruit, an aloe vera smoothie, or just a cup of tea or coffee. I also love just a slice of bread with some almond butter on it to go with this meal when I need a bit more protein.

Storage

Once assembled, your cottage cheese toast is best eaten fresh because the bread will get soggy. If you need to store the leftovers, wrap them separately and pop them into the fridge. Start with a fresh slice of toast to use up the leftover cottage cheese.
