12 Ways to Use Cottage Cheese That Will Rock Your World
12 Ways to Use Cottage Cheese That Will Rock Your World

If you haven’t tried cottage cheese since the ’80s, it is time to bring this treat back to the table for another go. Artisan cheese makers are receiving accolades for their new and innovative cottage cheeses. More and more brands are claiming prominent spots on grocery store shelves in the dairy section. Cottage cheese is making a comeback, and we are beyond thrilled.

Do you long to love cottage cheese the way we do, but just can’t bring yourself to dive back in? First, we’ll ask you to ignore everything you think you know about it and reexamine this healthy ingredient with fresh eyes. It boasts 24 grams of protein per cup, and as a fermented food, it contains probiotics (like L. acidophilus and B. bifidum) which can help with digestive health.

Next, let any memories of bland, unimaginative applications simply melt away. Cottage cheese is insanely versatile! You can make it sweet or savory, adding it into breakfast recipes, spreads, and salads. Sure, we won’t deny the goodness and simplicity of heaping dollops of the good stuff and a little freshly sliced pineapple perched on top, so you can hold on to that one. But totally forget about eating cottage cheese and boring rice cakes.
