Re: The Cottage Cheese Appreciation Thread (and where to buy our favourites)

When I am late or tired to cook, tuna-cottage wrap is a life saver: mix tuna and cottage cheese, add some lettuce, carrots, maybe avocado and pepper. Wrap it and boom ~30 gram protein ~300 calories

Nice... what do you use to wrap it in?

Re: The Cottage Cheese Appreciation Thread (and where to buy our favourites)

Since ricotta cheese is so expensive here (CHF 2.50 for a 250g tub), I'm thinking of using cottage cheese as a ricotta substitute for a lasagna, which I've read is a feasible, lower-fat option.

Has anyone tried? Should I strain the excess moisture beforehand?

So, this brings me to my questions for any fellow cottage cheese lovers out there...
My favourite is to spread some Cenovis/Marmite/Vegemite on Vollkorntoast and then cottage cheese over it. I feel the cottage complements and takes some of the edge off the strong yeast flavor and acidity.

Or just leave out the yeast extract altogether, problem solved.

My mom (in the US) use to use cottage cheese in her lasagna, instead of ricotta (I always assumed it was because ricotta was more difficult to find in the US, but not sure).

But her lasagna was quite good, and I think cottage cheese is actually thicker than normal ricotta -- at least if it's the large curd type. (?)

Re: The Cottage Cheese Appreciation Thread (and where to buy our favourites)

I personally usually find cottage cheese totally revolting. My son left a tub in the fridge when he was up in our Klosters apartment (along with the remains of a Chinese takeaway). I could do nothing with the takeaway other than bin it, but made the cottage cheese into a fish pate by simply puréeing it up with some smoked trout, dill and tabasco. Surprisingly pleasant!

Re: The Cottage Cheese Appreciation Thread (and where to buy our favourites)

We shop at Coop so I usually go for the Coop Prix Brand that’s the cheapest. Sometimes it’s a snack or a light breakfast, eat it with just the spoon out of the container. Great on salads as well and my mother uses it in her lasagne as well and I always loved it.

Thanks, Pancakes. I ended up buying two tubs of Coop organic cottage cheese at half price, and I used it in a two-salmon-and-spinach lasagna. Turned out amazing!

Re: The Cottage Cheese Appreciation Thread (and where to buy our favourites)

My opinion of the Migros Bio Cottage Cheese has now risen considerably since this thread was posted and it is my now one of my favourites. It has a delicate flavour with good consistency and I used it a lot as a quick snack and also with salmon https://produkte.migros.ch/bio-cottage-cheese

It's the only cheese I have ever used in lasagna. No need to drain it, but I do beat in an egg so it firms up a bit with cooking. Anyways, the new no-cook lasagna noodles that don't require pre-cooking need quite a bit of moisture in order to cook properly, so the moisture from the cheese is actually necessary in order to get good results.
