Whole Wheat Biscuits and Cottage Cheese Scrambled Eggs

The biscuits are good, especially if you like English muffins. Being whole wheat they have that English muffin smell, taste and texture. The scrambled eggs have got to be the best I've ever made. I swear this will be the only way I fix scrambled eggs from now on. I thank The Kitchen Stewardship for the recipe. I didn't change hardly anything in mine so all the credit goes to her.
