Cottage Cheese: Love It or Hate It?

A staple of restaurant "diet plates" in the '80s, cottage cheese is a great source of protein, and lots of people enjoy it for breakfast or a snack. But its texture makes it a pretty polarizing food. Are you a fan?

This is bizarre, but it's probably my favorite food. I always eat the nonfat kind - at the very least, once a day. SO DELICIOUS!

It can depend on brand, and I can usually only eat the full-fat kind. The low-fat kind is just nasty. I love it with LOTS of black pepper, put on triscuits. Yum.

I love it but it depends on the brand. Some taste like chunks of talc in watery liquid...I've got a couple of recipes I use it in and will use it with vegie sticks as a dip in a pinch...

Oh, and on a side note: my mom loves it so much she eats about a third of the container a night! She'll just sit and eat it straight out of the container...that's too much for me lol :-S

I'm in between. It has to be in something (or have something in it!). Sounds weird, but I discovered it while making lasagna: 2/3 cup cottage cheese + 1/3 cup spaghetti sauce + small can of mushrooms = delish! It's like uncooked lasagna (without the noodles and cheese, of course) :-)

I love cottage cheese. and something really funny for lunch today I had cottage cheese, 2 wasa crackers and raw red peppers lol. I could have had radishes but opted for the bell peppers instead. just weird considering that's the picture.

I like it plain, but I only really eat it when I'm at my mother-in-law's house. She thinks it's "diet food" and she always offers it to me as an alternative to the other stuff she puts out on the table for dinner. She and I are the only ones that actually eat it though...the rest of my husband's family hates it.

I need an other too. I like it sometimes, but not enough to eat it daily...or even weekly for that matter. But I don't hate it.

I know it's a weird food combination, but cottage cheese with canned tuna.

I need an "other" choice because I love it cooked into things and mixed up with onion, garlic and spices and put on a really hot baked potato, but I HATE it just cold and sitting there, even with fruit or yogurt. YUCK.

Top it with fresh pineapple.

I hate cottage cheese, and ironically am forcing myself to eat it today. Hopefully the blueberries help. :( Diets are awful.

Hate it. I have trouble with some textures and cottage cheese is one of them.
