Recipe by Kathy228

This is a Hungarian recipe that uses DRY cottage cheese. My mother would make this frequently as I grew up. Tastes great when eaten at a-little-warmer than room temperature.

This dish is very versatile. You can have it sweet or spicy, with fruits, veggies, bacon bits or cracklings.
