Cottage cheese casserole? It makes more sense than you think, and you simply need to follow this recipe to understand that you've just discovered the perfect snack: delicious, easy to prepare, cheap, and nutritious. Admit it, that's what it's all about!

Cottage cheese is a popular snack for many people. It satisfies the initial hunger, and for some, it serves as a quick second breakfast. Importantly, you don't need to do much to turn this dairy product into something significantly more delicious. Sometimes, all it takes is a spoonful of honey, some greens, and maybe some nuts. A bit more creativity can make cottage cheese a delicious casserole. How to do it? I'll explain everything now.

When we combine cottage cheese with a few clever additions, we can later pour it into a mould and bake it in the oven. What kind of additions am I talking about? Of course, eggs will ensure the right consistency for our snack. Additionally, something that will enhance the flavour is needed. I think the previously mentioned honey, a handful of forest fruits (it's no coincidence; after all, it's the season), and a bit of flavoured pudding will work best here. Below, I'll show you one of the tried and tested recipes for such a casserole. You won't find a better snack idea today!

Directions:

  1. Strain the cottage cheese through a sieve. Transfer to a bowl and mix.
  2. Crack the eggs and separate the yolks and whites. Mix the yolks with honey and vanilla extract, and beat the whites with a pinch of salt until stiff peaks form.
  3. Mix the cottage cheese with the pudding mix, add the yolks, and then fold the egg whites using a spoon.
  4. Transfer the prepared mixture to a greased baking dish. Top with forest fruits — raspberries, blueberries, currants, whatever you want.
  5. Bake for about 20 minutes at 180°C. Let it cool in the oven with the door open, and it's ready. Enjoy!
