If there’s one thing the wellness girlies can’t shut up about in 2024, it’s protein. Between the viral 30/30/30 method and recent pushback against outdated diet culture myths, the importance of getting enough protein in your diet is a hot topic. And one of the best ways to do that is to start your day with a high-protein breakfast. If you’re in the habit of downing a bowl of cereal before dashing out the door or grabbing a muffin on your daily coffee run, you know that carb-heavy, low-protein breakfasts often leave you with a mid-morning crash or an empty stomach only an hour or two later. For a more satisfying, longer-lasting alternative, TikTok users (and many of our editors) are currently obsessing over cottage cheese toast.

Consisting of a slice of toasted bread slathered with cottage cheese and your choice of toppings, this breakfast idea packs in a ton of protein and is totally customizable to your tastes. While cottage cheese may be a polarizing ingredient, the health benefits speak for themselves, and cottage cheese toast enthusiasts swear that once you try it, you’ll forget all about the questionable texture.

Whether you have yet to try this viral phenomenon or you’re fully on board and want some new topping ideas to work into your rotation, these cottage cheese toast recipes will start your day off right.
