    It might sound weird, but on a whim I tried it with a bit of Stevia mix (half stevia/half raw sugar) and cinnamon and it was great! I actually liked the little bit of crunch the sugar granules gave it, though I have no problem eating it plain by the carton (I eat at least a cup every day!!!). My wife hated it though, but I agree with salt and pepper, berries, and it's great on potatos and sweet potatos too!

    a gazillion years ago when in WW, I would make this ' not-so-Danish pastry' and remember it as YUMMY!

    1 slice crisp toast (I used whole wheat)
    2 ounces (1/4 cup) nonfat cottage cheese
    ⅛ teaspoon ground cinnamon
    ⅛ teaspoon vanilla
    ½ teaspoon sugar or sugar substitute
    Mix the cottage cheese with cinnamon, vanilla and sugar or sugar substitute. Spread on toast and place under the broiler until warmed through and beginning to bubble.
    Serve while warm.
    Variation: Top with 1 – 2 tablespoons drained crushed pineapple.

    I loooove cottage cheese just plain, but I also eat it :
    -In half of a cantalope as a meal in the summer. Low Cal, high protein, and so delish!!
    -with black raspberry jam mixed in.
    -in my salad as a topping.
    -mixed in my pasta bake.
    -with any canned fruit in lite syrup.
    -mixed with a tbls of ranch dressing and blended as a veggie or chip dip.
    -now I know this one is strange, but its good - in a bowl with hot applesauce and cinnamon over top.
    Enjoy! :drinker:

    I mix fruit into it.. you can do all with it. i have seen people put it on salad in place of dressing (haven't tried that one yet)
    I love cottage cheese so i can eat it by itself.

    I can eat it plain,, mixed with unsweetened apple sauce, with sliced bananas, with fresh or frozen berries.

    My husband eats it with either 1,000 Island or Ranch Dressing...

    Interesting idea, I think I'll try that.

    sometimes with fruit (especially pineapple- yum!), sometimes with just lots of fresh cracked black pepper and sometimes with a bit of catalina salad dressing mixed in. That might sound gross, but it's sooo good!
