Austin360Cooks: Cottage cheese and (fill in the blank)

I’m always amazed at what we put on cottage cheese.

Some of us — like me — are savory types, scattering salty nuts, crushed-up crackers or croutons, ingredients you might find at a salad bar.

Others, like Austinite Corby Wilfley, @nutritionnextdoor on Instagram, go the sweet route.

The licensed dietitian posted a photo of a sweet and savory breakfast: Sliced cherries and cracked black pepper on top of fat-free cottage cheese and sourdough toast made with Easy Tiger bread.

Sometimes, I’ll do really weird salty and sweet ingredients together on my cottage cheese, my favorite combination being raisins and black olives. (So weird, I know.)

Assuming you eat it in the first place — cottage cheese can be pretty divisive like that — how do you like to eat cottage cheese? Show or tell us by adding #Austin360Cooks to your posts on social media. Each week, we pull our favorite home-cooking photos for print and into a photo gallery online.
