Today’s recipe on Pumpkin Pie Stuffed Crepes is sponsored by Daisy Brand, but my love for their Daisy Cottage Cheese is all my own!
Sunday mornings in my house are often leisurely and filled with a family favorite breakfast. Cory doesn’t eat breakfast most days (bad I know) and now that the boys have started school they either their breakfast there. Sunday mornings allow us to have some of our favorite breakfasts together as a family and seems to kick the last “break day” off on the right tone. Our family enjoys homemade pancakes and homemade crepes often as our Sunday morning breakfast but I see one problem with this as I’m working behind the scenes to make my family healthier…they can be loaded with empty calories that leave us all hungry before lunch time.
I have gotten in the habit of adding in Daisy Cottage Cheese when I can because it really packs a punch in the protein department. Every serving of Daisy Cottage Cheese packs in 13 g of protein which is helpful in serving fun Sunday morning breakfasts to the family and making them last. Not only can I trust that by adding Daisy Cottage Cheese to my meals that the family won’t walk away hungry but it’s a brand I can trust. It’s made with only 4 ingredients and yes I can pronounce every one of them!
I’m still on my pumpkin spice kick for fall (ok I admit that lasts all year long!) and I wanted to make some Pumpkin Pie Stuffed Crepes but I knew they weren’t truly going to last the family until lunch time. I made my usual crepe recipe and paired it with my Pumpkin Spice Dip. The difference was the Daisy difference this time in which I added the 2% 16 ounce container of Daisy Cottage Cheese to my filling. This gave the filling a twist on flavor and bumped up the protein level a ton, which took the family from having a treat for breakfast to actually filling up on something. Everyone in the family loved them and was asking for seconds. You could easily use the 24 ounce container and pack additional protein into this yummy breakfast treat. Along with purchasing my eggs from the neighbors, I also make homemade whip cream, homemade pumpkin pie spice and pumpkin puree so I really know what is going into my breakfast.

Cottage cheese truly is a versatile food and goes great with just about anything you can pair it with. Growing up the neighboring mom used it in lasagna (of course) but would also eat it with just cottage cheese and diced radishes and celery in it. My brother in law eats his constantly with just a package of tuna added into it (talk about protein!) and my cousin’s husband likes to mix his cottage cheese with just mayo (not sure I have words for this). Daisy Cottage Cheese in either 2% or 4%, served plain or with some additions is truly a great snack or meal addition as it is low calorie (2% only has 90 calories per a serving) and packed with 1/4 of your daily protein recommendation.
