Default cottage cheese lovers, help me!

I just discovered the other day that I really like cottage cheese. I avoided it for so long because I didn't like the way it looked, but I finally gave in and tried it and I love it. My problem is, since I avoided it for so long, I have no idea how to eat it. Yes I know, spoon in cottage cheese, spoon to mouth, chew, swallow, repeat .... but what do I eat it with? Enlighten me ladies, please!

Default Mmmmmmmmmm.....i Love Cottage Cheese!!!

I'm also an apple freak. I love cutting up granny smith apples or pink lady apples and placing in a serving of cottage cheese .... fruit, fiber, cheese ... oh my!!!!

For the really adventurous ... place the mix in between 2 pieces of stone ground wheat bread. Beware ... co-workers will make fun of you

I like mine with some crunchy Iceberg lettuce, fresh toms and cucomber with freshly ground pepper, some pickled onions and a slice of wholemeal bread or ryvita if preferred. Yummy!

For sweet, my favourite is with canteloupe but any fruit is good. Otherwise I love it mixed with cut up tomatoes and cucumbers as a nice lunch "salad".

I have just discovered the beauty of "cottage cheese pancakes". They're referred to often here and I thought they sounded really creepy but I tried them and they're unbelievable. My husband loved them too. There's lots of different "recipes" but for one portion I mixed 1/3 cup cottage cheese, 1/3 cup egg whites and 1/3 cup raw oats in the blender with a bit of vanilla and splenda. Cook them in just a bit of Pam and yum! Delicious with a small amount of maple syrup (if you can handle just a little) or a bit of jam. Or they're great on their own.

Because it's basically equal amounts of the three main ingredients, you can make as much as you need.

I never understood the cottage cheese with fruit thing since it's so salty.. but to each their own

I either eat it with a spoon or I cut up some chives/green onion (thin pieces), grind a little bit of black pepper, and voila! Yummy!

I agree. If I'm eating it with fruit, I buy the no salt added. Tastes great with any kind of fruit or if you're going lowcarbish, sugar free jam.

I like the salted kind occasionally with cucumber slices. I make little sandwiches.

I like cottage cheese with a lot of things where usually I would have used cheddar. You get a lot more bang for the buck, so to speak.

I think it's a great side with an italian meal and salad...no bread, no parmesan...

I love it with chili.

I love it with anything really hot and spicy...it's has a nice cooling effect.

I like it with apples.

I love it with pepper and cherry tomatoes.

I even like mixing a packet of the dry ranch dressing seasoning and making my own, healthier veggie dip.

Cottage cheese and grapes! Or if you are feeling like trying something new, light ricotta cheese with cut up grapes and a little cinnamon, so good... too good actually.

I like the idea of cottage cheese with tomatos and basil, I might just try that!
