I had some cottage cheese leftover from the scrambled eggs I made last weekend,
So, I decided to whip up an old favorite. My mom used to make these, and then she taught me to make them. They were the very first recipe I memorized.
Part of the method for making cottage cheese pancakes is to only let 50% of the batch make it to the "cooling plate." The other 50% you have to eat straight out of the pan. If there are other people in the house, toss them one from the spatula as they walk by.
Then, if you are still hungry for breakfast once breakfast is finished cooking, you can have a plate of cottage cheese pancakes piled high with fresh berries and a light drizzle of syrup or dusting of confectioner's sugar. Personally, I prefer mine plain.
1 cup cottage cheese
3 tbsp vegetable oil
4 tbsp corn meal
all mixed together
Then fry 'em up!
