    it is really good. a few years ago, in a christmas basket we got a jar of mango salsa that was great. never able to find it again, but stumbled across this and I use it in my post training buritto:

    egg whites, low-fat vegetarian refried beans, cottage cheese (which actually works well replacing the cheese and sour cream) and the salsa in a low-carb wrap.

    Try Farmer's Cheese, it's just cottage cheese with the water wrung out. It's a little less gross-looking and really psychologically helped me get excited about cottage cheese (okay, maybe not excited, but it was just less repulsive).

    I would either spread it on slices of apples or bananas or drizzled with a little honey (or both). The other way I like to eat it is on a salad of raw spinach with sliced strawberries with a little grilled chicken breast. Amazing.

    I usually put two forkfuls in my omelettes. I definitely notice and enjoy the taste when it is there as opposed to when it isn't. Beware though, it can make an awful mess in the pan if you aren't careful.

    Truthfully other than that though I haven't been man enough to try it uncooked or in any other meals. I know my brother's friend eats it by the spoonful though.

    I eat it cottage cheese straight from the tub. Mmmm. I'm going to have some now...

    ... ok. My advice is to sample a few brands. Some are way, way better than others. I've eaten the same brand since I was a kid, but now sometimes when I order shopping online, they send the wrong brand, and it's horrid -- all dry and firm and yech. Nothing like the cottage cheese I know and love. So shop around.

    Also, bear in mind that cottage cheese tends to be really high in sodium, so if that is a thing to you, I'd moderate just how much you're ingesting. Actually, if you're only eating it for its nutritional value anyway, I'd compare the nutritional profiles of different brands, too, because it varies a lot.

    And fine, if you must mix it to enjoy, I'd try it with some plain (ie non-sugary, because that would be a little gross) yogurt and maybe some fruit. I also sometimes use it as cheese on mini pizzas made from pita bread and it melts really nicely.

    Oh also, if you don't like cottage cheese, you could just eat ricotta -- similar amount of protein (little bit more fat, though).

    I don't like cottage cheese either and used to eat it. Greek yogurt has a higher amount of protein than regular yogurt and could be eaten instead. http://www.fageusa.com/products.html

    If you like yogurt. Though it is different than the yogurt you typically find in stores. Much thicker and really not as sour.

    I used to hate cottage cheese (except for in lasagna - yeah, that's right. What are you gonna do about it? Go **** some bears)... honestly, a lot of the challenge is just getting used to it.

    The different brands and varieties do vary a great deal, so try different ones. I personally find dry curd absolutely impossible to swallow... my preference is for 1%.

    Cubed melons (cantaloupe, honeydew, watermelon) in cottage cheese is delicious.

    Also, when starting out, you might want to drain off some of the whey to make the texture less offensive.

    Here are a bunch of suggestions:

    The oatmeal pancakes are fantastic; I've also tried the rye version further down the page.
    The 'cheesecake' recipe is great, as long as you treat it as a breakfast rather than a dessert; it doesn't bear much relation to actual cheesecake. I'm making the crustless quiche today.

    Also, you can make a veggie dip by blending cottage cheese with herbs and garlic.

    Link's broken - one too many http's. Edit your post to fix it, because the pancake recipe looks like it could be really good.
