Must-Try Cottage Cheese Recipes

Cottage cheese is a chunky cheese that’s made from the curds of milk. Unlike most types of cheese, its consistency is not solid, but rather a bit runny and lumpy. Cottage cheese has a mild, slightly sweet taste that many people enjoy as a healthy, low-calorie snack. However, cottage cheese can also be used in a variety of recipes to add flavor and texture. We’ve got a couple of cottage cheese recipes to share with you!
