    Pepper. Loads of pepper.

    I did the pineapple thing too, Stings. You can buy pre-measured cups of cottage cheese that come with a fruit as well. Those are great if you're on the go.

    The key for me is added cinnamon and splenda :)

    Blending helps, too. I used to find it strange, now I love it.

    You probably feel like I did when I tried mastover's egg white/PB omelet. Some of us just don't like stuff others do :)

    I eat the Great Value cottage cheese. I've added pepper, didn't like it at all. It was eh.

    I've tried chocolate syrup (sugar free... made w/ splenda), it was alright. Still to sweet.

    I've tried just regular CC + splenda, to sweet.

    I'm going to try yogurt tomorrow. Almonds rocks too

    I just bought my first container today. I bought the fat free stuff and it didn't taste nearly as bad as I thought it would. It tasted like nothing to me which isn't a bad thing for me. I'm going to try it with pineapple tonight and I don't really expect to taste anything but the pineapple.

    I add Blackberry Fifty50 Spread to my cottage cheese, http://www.fifty50foods.com/spreads.html. At 10 calories per Tbspn, you can't go wrong and there is not much further preperation involved. I mix in Flax Oil or Udo's oil with this before bed.

    For the people that eat it with just pepper, do you eat cold, warm, room temp? I'm trying to imagine eating pepper with something cold and I'm having a hard time picturing it.

    Always cold. Warm dairy is nasty.

    Pepper goes with cold just fine. If you put pepper on a sandwich with cold meats, it's just one example. Salt and pepper on slices of tomato, one more.

    I like Cottege cheese and crushed red pepper. Sometimes I'll get crazy and mix in some green tabasco sauce.

    Tuna, CC, splash or two of Teriyaki sauce and a couple of tsp of hot chile sauce. Yum.

    If you want to get really extravagant with your cottage cheese and are looking for a protein/fat meal for the evening, try this:

    1/4 cup fat free quark (if you don't know what quark is, go here - you could use regular unsalted cottage cheese and blend it until it's smooth)
    1/2 oz coarsely ground almonds (just use your food processor)
    1 tbsp ground flax seeds
    1 tbsp chocolate protein powder
    1 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
    30 g natty PB
    sweetener as desired (I would use Splenda, but I can't get that where I live :()

    Nutritional info:
    424 kcal
    27f
    10c
    35p

    Put the quark or smooth cottage cheese in a bowl and whisk it with sweetener and some water until it reaches a relatively runny consistency. Add the PB and mix it in. Then add the dry ingredients and stir them in. In the end you should have a mixture that is somewhat more runny than regular pudding. Pour the whole thing into a small bowl and put it in the fridge for 2-3 hours. Enjoy!

    Something this delicious should not be good for you, but what are you going to do? :D

    P.S. You can experiment with the recipe and leave out the almonds or use less PB in order to reduce the calorie count.

    i don't get the whole "sweet" cottage cheese thing either.

    i LOVE cottage cheese. i usually just eat it mixed with tomatoes and pepper. it's also good on a salad with tomatoes, black beans, salsa and chicken.... kind of like a taco salad (minus the taco)

    I know this is a fairly old thread, but I wanted to post this.

    The other night I was experimenting around with cottage cheese. I added some mushroom sauce, some fat free smoked sheddar, and some oats, and a little milk.

    The result was....awesome!!! It tastes like mac and cheese to me. It is soooo good I am gonna plan this meal into my menus fairly soon as I get it down solid.

    This sounded kinda weird to me at first, but I have grown to really like it in the morning. I prepare 1/2 C Oatmeal (raw) w/ 1 C Skim Milk - nuke it for 2 minutes. Add 1/2 C FF Cottage Cheese and some Splenda. The CC gets creamy - it's quite good.
