What are your favorite ways to eat cottage cheese?
I've recently rediscovered my love of it (thank you, pregnancy cravings) and am looking for different ways to eat it.

Some that I have tried and loved:
with fruit/honey mixed in
A little bit of jam or jelly (tastes like really rich cheesecake, in a way)
Chili powder
Cavender's Greek seasoning
Black pepper
Spread on top of tomato slices with one of the three seasonings above

    From the Centr "cook book" - Mix with tahini and honey. Put on toast. Top with banana and nuts.

    I made a tomato onion jam the other day and have mixed that with cottage cheese to have on toast.

    I love cottage cheese and fruit (maybe just a little crushed ice) in the blender. Cheesecake pudding.

    For volume when I’m really hungry, some crumbled bacon or sausage, onions, peppers, 1 egg, 2 or 3 egg whites, 1/2 cup cottage cheese scrambled makes a huge meal for 400 or so calories that keeps me full for hours.

    Drained cottage cheese mixed with a little vanilla, sweetener if you like, on toast, in oven until cheese melts, fresh fruit on top.

    I haven’t tried it yet, but been thinking about bacon, tomato, cottage cheese on toast, melted. Doesn’t that sound good?

    Cottage cheese on baked potato with baked beans on top....may sound strange but super delicious and filling.

    Cottage cheese on a piece of toast, drizzle with honey and sprinkle with cinnamon. I love that stuff 😬
    I also like to cook omelets and then put cottage cheese in the fold. Tried it in oatmeal yesterday and liked that too

    I am planning to make mac and cheese where the base of cheese sauce is cottage cheese blitzed in the food processor, thinned down with milk if needed. The cheese sauce will include grated mature cheddar to bake with the macaroni.

    I particularly like chopped spring onions, cherry tomatoes, a few crushed Doritos and a good splash of Tabasco. 😋

    Also, chopped hard boiled egg and cucumber - makes a really good egg mayo substitute!

    Lots of black pepper and those crunchy chow mein noodles.

    I love it with pears or frozen blueberries. Also like pepper and boiled eggs on top of cottage cheese.

    Quarter cup of oats, quarter cup of cottage cheese, 1 egg, sweetener (I don't usually put it in mine), sometimes cinnamon - mixed with a spoon or blender, then fried in a pan with a little cooking spray. Makes a decent sized pancake for breakfast, and very tasty and filling with low cal syrup.

    I always just cut up a banana and a cutie (mandarin orange)

    A1 steak sauce. Or Mrs Renfro’s green salsa, which isn’t really like green salsa but is straight up puréed jalapeño.

    Fresh dill.
    Other fresh herbs would probably work too.

    So I made the mac and cheese with the sauce base of 0% fat cottage cheese blitzed in the food processor thinned down with milk to a bechamel consistency and mixed with grated hard cheese and seasonings for flavour. Not as deliciously rich as a traditional mac and cheese based on bechamel but enjoyably lighter and less stodgy.
    Next time I will use a wider thinner casserole dish because the crunchy topping of grated parmesan and buttered breadcrumbs were the star of the show.

    A favorite low carb breakfast of mine is cottage cheese topped with an oz of salted peanuts, with coffee or tea.
