Am I the only oddball that eats it plain. :-p

I'm a purist - I love it plain with a ton of black pepper.

I'm even more of a purist.. I love it plain. :)

Oh my, I cannot imagine a day without cottage cheese - it's definitely one of my favorite products.
I eat it for breakfast with all kinds of yoghurt OR/AND raisins, nuts, dried fruit OR/AND honey - if I want something sweet.
I eat it with salt, parsley, garlic and pepper - if I don't want anything sweet.

I also make sandwitches with it - you know, with those Fazer Crisps or plain rye bread.

I love it with garlic powder and use it as a dip for veggies, crackers or pita chips. So good with bell pepper or celery!

I mix cottage cheese with tuna and chives. I eat it on wheat crackers, or just by itself. I don't measure but I think I use about half a cup of cottage, probably 3oz. tuna, and a hand full of chives.

1/2-1 Cup of it with 1 packet of sweetener and 2 Tbsp of Cocoa Powder equals COMPLETE CHOCOLATEY UBER-AWESOMENESS.

OMG this sounds yummy!

Nope, I eat it plain too. Yummy.

I saw a recipe in a magazine that sounds good, it was cottage cheese topped with apple butter, sunflower seeds, and bananas.

I like to chop up an apple (granny smith is the best!), sprinkle it with cinnamon and nuke it in the microwave for a minute or two until it's tender. Then I put a big dollup of cottage cheese on top of that and enjoy!

I also like it with fruit and just plain. I'm going to have to try mixing it with tuna!

I blend mine with a little dry ranch dressing, to make a dip for veggies

Put it in the bin

I like it on my salads, it's delicious!! Loving some of the other ideas on here too :)

I put it on toast with a slice of tomato either for breakfast or as a snack. You can also use it as a substitute for recipes that call for ricotta cheese.

i like mine with a little whip cream in it to sweeten it & a little powder jello mix in it for flavor
March 27, 2012 8:44 AM
I only eat it plain, yum! Brought some with me at work as a matter of fact!

I like just sprinkling with a little salt and eating it. You can put it in lasagna, or make deviled eggs substituting half the yolks with the cheese.

MAKE COTTAGE LOAF. very good and its good for you! love

I use it as a filling for crepes. You can add fruit and chocolate to make it a sweet crepe, or herbs and sauteed vegetables to make it savory.

My usual morning breakfast includes:
1 cup fat free cottage cheese
2 table spoons for flax seed
2 cups of raw strawberries
1 cup pinapple
1/2 cup raw almonds

I start out with the fruit on the bottom, I put the cottage cheese on top, and sprinkle the almonds and flax seed on top... it's filling and so healthy.

This is such a versatile cheese, you can put it with anything! I like to put in a baked potatoe, on the side with pasta, i will mix dried fruit with some cheese for a snack... Love this stuff!!

love this recipe

Just yesterday, I used 2% cottage cheese to prepare an orange jellow salad. It was great! I also have replaced ricotta cheese with cottage cheese in my lasagna. I still use it over fruit every now and then as well.

Just put it on the top of a whole grain craker and eat it! LOL I love it plain!!!

I've been having protein milkshakes: 1 cup of water, 1/2 cup cottage cheese, 1-2 packets of stevia, 1 scoop protein powder, 7-10 ice cubes, and then whatever flavor I want. I usually throw in a couple tablespoons of sugar free, fat free chocolate pudding mix. Last night, I put in 2 tablespoons sugar free, fat free cheesecake pudding mix and a handful of frozen no sugar added strawberries. So good!!!! Under 300 calories, around 33g of protein, satisfies my ice cream craving, and keeps me super full for the rest of the night.
