In the endless quest for low-carb alternatives that don’t compromise on taste or texture, Aunt Millie’s low carb English muffins, from their Live Carb Smart range, have emerged as a delightful revelation. They’ve found their way into many breakfast tables and with good reason. They’re not just another ‘healthier’ alternative; they genuinely impress in terms of taste and texture, a feat not many low-carb bread products can boast.
Taking on the Trend: Cottage Cheese & English Muffin
Recently, there’s been a surge in the popularity of pairing English muffins with cottage cheese. It’s been splashed all over social media, and the combination, though seemingly simple, promises a delightful taste experience. Intrigued by this trend and armed with Aunt Millie’s low carb English muffins, I decided to jump aboard the bandwagon and see if it lives up to the hype.
I decided to top the muffins with a generous spread of Good Culture‘s double cream cottage cheese – a personal favorite due to its rich creaminess. Taking inspiration from diverse recommendations, I went with two different toppings:
- Momofuku Chili Crunch & Choc Zero Keto Honey: The first bite of this combination was a revelation. The chili crunch added a kick that contrasted perfectly with the sweetness of the honey. The creamy texture of the cottage cheese brought everything together seamlessly. This combo is an explosion of flavors, and I can’t recommend it enough.
- Choc Zero Raspberry Jam: Opting for a classic pairing for the second half, I spread some raspberry jam over the cottage cheese. The fruitiness of the jam complemented the creaminess of the cheese, making for a delightful bite. While absolutely delicious, if I had to choose, the chili crunch and honey pairing slightly edged this one out for me.
