dry cottage cheese - what can I do with it?

On a whim, I bought a pound of it, tasted it (fine, just not very tasty), and now I don't know what to use it in... any ideas?

  1. With egg noodles, butter, scallions, a little garlic, sour cream, or for making a savory pastry with phyllo dough, spinach and monterey jack cheese, or for a cheesecake.

    1. Make cheese blintzes. I don't have a recipe offhand, but google "cheese blintzes" and you'll probably get dozens. A blintz, if you're not familiar with it, is a crepe. It's a Jewish/Eastern European specialty, usually served with sour cream, plus anything from fresh berries to apple sauce to maple syrup.

        I agree with the blintz reco. I made them the other day and they are very nice when the weather gets cold. Plus, I think that they freeze well.

        Here is the recipe that I used:

          My friend makes a Midwestern version of blintzes--a blintz pie--that is absolutely delicious, and she's always having trouble finding dry cottage cheese so she has to drain regular. If you like, I'll dig up the recipe when I get home.
