    Oh yes. Some weirdos mix pineapple with it...but that is heresy.

    Hello, weirdo here, I love my 70% fat free cottage cheese with pineapple in, lol. I do myself 2 slices of toast and eat 100g with each slice, I take I forkfall of cottage cheese and a bite of toast, it's one of my favs because I feel like I'm having a healthy munch out.

    Blasphemy!

    I suppose your one of those monsters who ruin perfectly good pizza by putting pineapple on it, aren't you? :D

    Don't get me wrong. I love pineapple. Just not in cottage cheese, and not on pizza, and not even on ham.

    Yep, my favourite pizza is ham and pineapple, lol. Hold onto your hat now, I love sultanas in a curry too ????

    Maybe its b/c you got the fat free kind. Try some that is 2% or higher. It taste so much better, IMO. Brands also very in thickness. Our favorite brand is Daily Chef from Sam's. I love to eat is plain along with my salad at lunch. YUM! I just wish it was lower in sodium.

    oh yeah, another thing, 450 mg of sodium for just half a cup??????

    I don't like cottage cheese either OP - fortunately its not something essential in anyone's diet.

    I do however like pineapple on pizzas and sultanas in curries - and have even been known to have a ham cheese pineapple toasted sandwich. :happy:

    If it tells you anything cottage cheese is often substituted for ricotta in lasagna.

    Personally I mix it with nothing. Plain, with a spoon, from the container.

    You are eating it correctly, then. IMO, of course. ;-)

    I know others disagree, but I'm firmly in the camp that says it goes with savory foods. I eat it as a side or just plain. Before I watched calories I used to eat lots of it, out of the carton. I am pleased it currently fits into my macros so well.

    Texture matters, though--there are kinds I love and kinds, specifically the thicker ones without distinct curds, I don't care for, so the OP might want to try a couple alternative brands before writing it off. Also, I'd never choose mixers without tasting something first. It's certain disappointment. So is expecting it to taste like yogurt.

    I love my cottage cheese with salsa and hot sauce. It's good with corn chips too.

    I think it might be an acquired taste. No, seriously. A lot of people say that for stuff like beer and wine, but I think cottage cheese can be included in that. I didn't like it for years and years, but now suddenly I love it and crave it. I eat it with bananas, honey, tomatoes, whatever. Although now I can't eat it anymore because I've become lactose intolerant :(:(:(:(:(

    Stir in a little sauerkraut and top with a big spoon of pickle relish. I am sure that it will not taste any better, but the look on your face with the first spoonful would be priceless. Cottage cheese, yuck.

    add stuff too it!

    cottage cheese with pineapple
    cottage cheese with tomatoes
    plain with a little pepper and parsley
    use it as dip for pizza rolls
    Or my personally favorite, cottage cheese mixed with baked beans. Then if I have chips it becomes my dip lol. It's a family thing, my parents and all 3 off us kids have been eating beans and cottage cheese mixed together for as long as I can remember!

    I eat 4% and it is delicious. I just had a bowl mixed in with granola - yum. Also good with 1/2 an avocado, or with fruit.

    I hated Cottage cheese too, but I recently tried it with salsa mixed in and that will work for me.

    I am eating some right now! I don't add anything to it. I think it tastes great all by itself .. I'm not very adventurous when it comes to my food.. but some people put all kinds of stuff in it :smile:

    Maybe look up some different ways to make it and try again!

    Try adding the lumps (and the seeds) to salad leaves. Or on crackers.

    I prefer the pineapple and cottage cheese you can buy. Probably down to sugar which will kill baby elephants.
