    I hate cottage cheese alone! I mix a serving in a bowl with a half to full scoop of whey, a serving of natty PB, and cinnamon. Try different flavors of whey. Chocolate makes it taste like a peanut butter cup especially if you microwave the PB a little just to heat it up

    I can't eat it by itself as it really makes me gag! Pineapple is good or I just throw some low cal/carb yoghurt in with it if I am watching my carbs.

    Try mixing some tuna in with it. It's not the greatest tasting thing, but it helps somewhat.

    I like my cottage cheese 2 ways. Add a bunch of strawberries for sweet or add a spoon-full of chili powder and pepper for savory. I had the savory style last night for a quick snack.

    Mix in with an egg scramble (add veggies or other meats) optionally add a bit of fav hot sauce
    Or
    Eat with celery sticks and natty PButter

    I eat it as a late night snack, dip an apple in it but I don't mind eating it alone, the taste doesn't bother me

    If you have a Kroger's by you, buy the Kroger brand fat free cottage cheese. Tastes really good. I can't stand any other cottage cheese.

    EDIT: It also has a pretty good profile: 5g carbs with 15g protein.

    First, OP, you're aware that cottage cheese comes in different curd sizes (small, medium, large)? Not everyone realizes and they just grab the first tub. Second, you can go sweet or savory with it. Sweet: Cinnamon and splenda could be a real treat. Throw in some natural pb and thats good too. Savory: Have you ever had a gyro? Because you could make a gyro tzatziki sauce with the cottage cheese that is so good you'll be licking your fingers. Also, spinach onion and feta in filo dough isnt bad, tho you need to be on a diet that permits that kind of carb and fat intake.

    It depends on the brand. Try the full fat variety, Cabot.

    I love cottage cheese plain. And if I do mix something in I don't mix anything in it except a little black pepper.

    Yeah I like it plain too. Wouldn't want to mix it with anything, that would ruin it.

    I'll usually make a shake with some yogurt, fruit, skim milk, cottage cheese and some whey.

    If you're hungry enough, just about anything tastes good I've actually come to love the taste of plain cottage cheese. I look forward to it moreso than I look forward to my daily Greek yogurt. As others have said, brand makes all the difference in the world. This stuff is the shiz:

    It's the creamiest/best consistency I've found. For the rest of your dairy protein needs, go for a cup of this w/a packet of Stevia or Splenda in it. So good:

    I put a little sugar free maple syrup in my cottage cheese. Makes for a nice treat right before I go to bed.

    If you have a Kroger, you MUSt try this recipe.... a half cup of cottage cheese with a CarbMaster yogurt (only sold at Kroger) and a handful of your favorite unsalted nuts (almonds, peanuts, walnuts, sunflower seeds, pistachios)
    deeeeeee-licous

    I'm gonna try this tomorrow. Just picked up the carbmaster yogurt and put it in my oats this morning. It was pretty good. Good alternative to the sugar heavy packaged oat meal if you want the fruit flavor.

    New recipe! Literally 2 whopping table spoons of peanut butter for a 6-serving container of cottage cheese, or 2 smaller tablespoons for a 4-serving container, mixed with ~3-5 packets of truvia or splenda. Mix vigorously (doesn't have to be mixed for a long time, just vigorously until the pb starts to change the color of the cottage cheese). Magic!
