  • Step 2

    Combine eggs, cottage cheese, heavy cream, and salt in a blender; mix until thoroughly blended, 15 to 20 seconds.

  • Step 3

    Spray mason jars with cooking spray. Divide egg mixture between each jar. Screw on the lids until just barely tightened. Do not over-tighten as the jars can burst in the hot water.

  • Step 4

    Submerge mason jars into the water bath and set timer for 55 minutes. When timer is up, remove jars to a cooling rack. If serving immediately, run a knife along the outer edge and invert onto a plate; you can also eat directly from the jar. Let any remaining jars cool, then refrigerate for up to 1 week.

  • Cook's Notes:

    To add cheese flavor, blend 1/2 cup of your favorite shredded cheese in with the egg mixture. You can also add 1 tablespoon of cooked add-ins to the bottom of each jar before pouring in the egg mixture. Some favorite combos include broccoli and cheddar, ham and Swiss, or roasted red pepper and feta.

    Reheat in the microwave at low power (30%) for about 1 minute, or in a sous vide bath for 10 to 15 minutes at 150 degrees F (65 degrees C).
