Question Cottage cheese?

I think I have 4 or 5lb, have no idea what to make with it. I made lasagna last night, but this what I have left. Need to use asap, because it is going to go bad fast. Help please?!

I just read where you can freeze milk, I wonder if you can freeze cottage cheese?

I put cottage cheese on everything!

In mashed potatoes
With buttered noodles, ad meat if you want
In an omlet
With any pasta dish
In a tortilla chip/tomatoes/cheese/green chillis/chicken bake
In tuna dishes

I make a lot of stove top noodle/canned chicken or tuna dishes...easy and one pot. Cottage cheese always ads a nice creaminess to it.

Try it, you'd be suprised!

ETA: Mom made a cheese cake with cottage cheese once, it was really good.

Thank you everybody.

I'm afraid the cottage cheese is past the time of freezing. Some of the containers I opened had mold, I had dump them. So I need something quick and major to make or throw the rest of them away. 5 pounds is just way too much. Noodles and tuna sounds good, problem is I'd be the only one to eat it. Blintzes might work, but that means I have to make the crapes too, I have to think about that one.

Any other ideas?

Anybody put stuff in what we called jello, now Jello brand gelatin? As a kid I loved the stuff with cottage cheese mixed in as it was gelling - liked lime flavor with cottage cheese especially. This should use a few tablespoons Charlie!

And...

This cottage cheese pie sounds yum. Maybe you can add spinach & nutmeg (like a spanokopita), or salmon - like a quiche?

Please, David.... I'm trying to build my appetite for dinner here
I gotta say, while I like jello (other than lime), I never heard of mixing cottage cheese in with it.

You can make a great spinach dish with it:

Spinach Casserole


2-10 oz pkgs frozen spinach, thawed
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
8 tbls melted butter
6 eggs, beaten
16 oz cottage cheese
2 tbls all-purpose flour
1 lb. sharp cheddar cheese, grated
salt & Pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 13x9 baking dish. Drain spinach well. Sauté onion and garlic in 2 tbls of the melted butter. Mix spinach with eggs, cottage and cheddar cheeses, flour and remaining butter. Add sautéed onions and garlic. Season with salt & pepper. Pour into dish and bake for 1 hour.




Or you you can put it in Jello:

Jello Salad Recipe - Quick Salad Recipes

Or make a cheesecake:

Cheesy Cheesecake
(There are a lot of other cottage cheese recipes here, as well.)

Put a dollup on canned peaches or pears and eat for lunch.

Or season with salt and pepper and serve as a side.
