Cottage Cheese....Help!

What, besides 5lbs of sugar, will make cottage cheese not taste like s$&t? Tried 1/2 C cottage cheese with 1/4 C crushed pineapple. Anything else?

    Do you have to eat cottage cheese? :)
  • Cottage cheese tends to be high in sodium, low in taste, maybe Greek yogurt instead?

    Why do you have to eat cottage cheese? I would just skip it. I can't tolerate lowfat cottage cheese, but I do really like the full fat version.

    I have been known to eat cottage cheese straight out of the tub and love every bite, but if you don't enjoy eating it, then you don't *have* to.

    If you're still determined to get it into your diet somehow, you can add it to scrambled eggs and you won't have to deal with the slightly weird texture or the taste by itself -- instead, it will make your eggs a bit fluffier with a subtle cheesy flavour.

    I grill mine cause I just can't eat it straight.

    I spread vegemite on toast and then add 'cottage cheese with chives' - grill and eat ......yum :)

    Hmmmm...I love cottage cheese but it's not for everyone.

    My suggestion would be to try it with pears and if that doesn't work, don't sweat it. Have you tried different fat contents and curd sizes? My favorite brand (not available in all areas) is Breakstone's Smooth and Creamy small curd 4% fat cottage cheese.

    I hope this helps. :happy:

    I agree with the above. Greek yogurt would make an excellent substitute for cottage cheese.
  • I mix mine with some tuna and have it on corn thins or crackers

    I LIKE cottage cheese.

    But I agree -- pineapple makes it taste great.

    You might also consider chopping up onions and tomatoes.

    The only time I eat cottage cheese is when I put it in lasagne. :smile:

    Love my cottage cheese, would happily eat it all day long.

    First choice is mixing it 50/50 with Greek Gods plain nonfat yogurt and slightly thawed organic frozen raspberries (or blueberries).

    Yum times ten.
