Cottage cheese bake with couscous

We like cottage cheese bake, so I have already tried a lot of versions like simple cottage cheese bake, cottage cheese and pasta bake, cottage cheese and vanilla pudding bake and cottage cheese and rice bake. This time I tried with couscous. Everyone tastes a little bit different but we like them all. And it’s good to know that everytime I can choose by my refrigerator content.

Cottage cheese and boiled potato bake

Potatoes and cottage cheese – it’s always a great company. So why not to combine them in to a bake. It can be prepared within a few minutes. I found this recipe in Russian magazine about child-caring, but significantly changed by our observations: original recipe asks to slice the potatoes, but we prefer grated because it distributes better; original asks to pour more milk, we prefer the more eggs, and this bake comes out stronger. For us our experimentations came out super tasty. So, honestly, I urge you to try it too 😉

Cottage cheese and rye flour balls, or cookies?

The author of this recipe says it’s cookies and in her blog they really look like cookies. In my case, they are balls and the texture is between cookies and buns. Therefore, we call them just balls. The first day they have crispy exterior and the next they are all soft. In my family, they are enjoyed in all forms. Just I have to hide some if I want to enjoy them next day. By the way, you can see from the ingredient list that all sweetness comes from just one tablespoon of honey, so in our opinion they are not cookies at all 🙂 But if you will enjoy them with a sweet drink, they will be perfect companions.

Buns with cottage cheese

I bake these buns everytime I have some cottage cheese left and want something sweet but at the same time simple. And the next day I just love to warm them a few seconds in the microwave – then they smell like newly baked. Really good!

Cucumber bites with cottage cheese

Very refreshing and easy snack. If you will use blender, you will prepare it in minutes. Taste was very similar to cold beet soup just without beets.
