    I am always looking for new ideas for breakfast, especially those that are low fat & filling. I bought oat bran English muffins as I couldn't find whole wheat. Give this one a try -- I never thought of cottage cheese as a breakfast food, but this was very good! -M

    this recipie was delicious!! At first I thought it sounded a little strange, so I tried it before I fixed it for my 8 year old daughter and loved it, so I fixed it for her, and she loved it too!! TRY IT!!! Sherrill Tello

    I have to put my 2 cents worth in here. Because of comments in the discussion forums, I decided to give this one a try, even though I am not a cottage cheese eater. This was really good. I liked the flavor and the cinnamon and sweetner made the cottage cheese very tasty. Especially with the banana and cinnamon/raisin bagel that I put it on. Thanks for posting this one.

    A healthy on-the-go (or not) breakfast! I used low fat cottage cheese and low fat english muffins. Thanks for the recipe!

    I am on Weight Watchers and I love this for breakfast. It turned out to only be 3 points and is pretty filling. I only had rye bread in the house at the time so I tried it and it was delightful!!! I have passed this recipe on to several people this week alone. Its terrific. Thanks for sharing your idea!!!

    Very nice. I used a whole wheat english muffin and honey instead of cinnamon. I put the cottage cheese on first, then added sliced banana, topped with some drizzled honey. A tasty, healthy breakfast that I will definitely make again!

    i liked this quite a bit, though i did change it to be... less healthy. using what was on hand, i had toasted sourdough bread, and used whole milk ricotta cheese in place of cottage cheese. next time i may try strawberries instead of bananas.

    I sometimes have spicy fruit muffins with banana for breakfast, but hadn't thought to add cottage cheese. I've eaten it the past two mornings using toasted fruit & spice loaf as the base and liked it very much. It's healthy, substantial and ideal for those with a sweet tooth who find it hard to eat breakfast. It's also an easy way to add a little extra protein to one's diet. Yesterday I used sugar in place of the sweetener, and today tried it with a drizzle of honey which was even nicer.


I am a single gal, living on my own; currently working as an Occupational Therapist & living in Cumberland, MD. (It is "God's Country" out here...beautiful!) I LOVE to cook and bake, and love anything that looks, tastes, smells, or even closely resembles a veggie. I LOVE moo-cows, and therefore, cannot bring myself to eat any part of the adorable critters (i.e. NO RED MEAT!!) I love the outdoors, and pride myself on being the master griller on the fire pit. My mother's side of the family is 100% Polish, so I have an inborn passion for cooking...unfortunately, along with that comes a love of eating, too!! But, hey..u only live once, so I say "EAT, DRINK, and BE MERRY!!!"
