Cottage Cheese and Ketchup......

on 11/27/11 1:59 am - Canton, OH
 That was Richard Nixon's favorite way to eat his cottage cheese...

 Since cottage cheese is a great source of protein, we eat it almost daily in my house.  We eat it both sweet and savory and even added to things like scrambled eggs, meatloaf and my quirky fave, whisked into warm V-8 (kind of like a cream of tomato

How about YOU? How do you like your cottage cheese?

Like a lasagna with sauce and turkey pepperoni with no pasta. Egg, spinach, and cottage cheese omlette. With peeled tomatos, or baked apple slices, avacodos, pineapple.... Love cottage cheese!

I like mine with dill and black pepper. When I want my c.c. sweet then I mix in some Splenda and cinnamon.

Pineapple. Or plain.

Plain with salt and pepper. Smothered in applesauce. I'm gonna have to try that one with V8. I love tomato soup and V8 both. I also like it on baked potato with salsa and cheese instead of sour cream.

Surgery is Tuesday. Guess won't be doing the baked potato version for awhile. LOL

with ketchup or french dressing for tangy; topped with applesauce for sweeter, dessert-like snack.

omg! cottage cheese makes me gag but it is so very interesting to see how many different ways to eat it

 My thoughts exactly, but they are sooo creative with it, I think I will have to try it one more especially the one with the V-8,because I luvv Tomato soup. Whew, thought I was the only one that didn't like C.C.

I got SO sick of eating it during the first 3 months post-op that I rarely eat it (or scrambled eggs) now (even 4 years later)!   When I did eat it, I just put some pepper on it. 

I much prefer Greek yogurt which has the same amount of protein and does not have the textural challenges of cottage cheese.

YUMMMY YUM YUM I love my cottage cheese with Apple Butter.  Yes I know apple butter is sweet but has the same amount of sugar as sugar free applesauce.  I had an aunt that ate it with ketchup all the time.

i also like mine with pineapple too!!

I love cottage cheese with pepper on it, slathered over a hot piece of pumpernickel toast. It must be hot toast tho. Just to melt the cottage cheese a tiny bit.

If I want it sweet I make a mock rice pudding out of it. Yum!

Met my first goal, met my second goal, met my surgeons goal. Now I have a new goal!

I'm kind of grossed out yet intrigued about all these cottage cheese ideas. I tried the fruit & cottage cheese doubles once a few years ago and couldn't get past the texture. Maybe I'll give it another shot.

I had an employee a while back who ate cottage cheese with yogurt.  I couldn't even THINK that would be good until I tried it...and I LOVED it!  I eat it like that all the time now!

I love plain, fat free greek yogurt but I sometimes miss those flavored Yoplait yogurts in the blue containers.  Since they are so low in protein, I can't justify taking up the room in my stomach.  BUT, when I mix it with the cottage cheese which is high in protein, I can do it.

Try's really good!
