Cottage Cheese Oatmeal Pudding


I'm having a breakfast in bed this morning.  I'll let you in on a little secret...I have breakfast in bed every morning.  It is a custom that my late beloved and I started when we were empty nesters, and which I continue. 


 My sweet niece, Maggie, gave me this Hello Kitty mug awhile back.  Isn't it cute?





Yield: 4 servings

Cottage Cheese Oatmeal Pudding

I will give you the full recipe, but I only make half. The full recipe says that it serves four, but I think the half recipe serves that many. This is a wonderful, comforting dish, that will keep you full for hours.  The texture is actually quite fluffy and oh, so good!

ingredients:

2 cups cottage cheese
2 cups cooked oatmeal
2 eggs
1 cup milk
6 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon (my addition)
salt to taste

instructions:

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.  Butter a 1 and 1/2 quart baking dish. For the half recipe, I use a 1 quart baking dish.
You can use a food processor or an electric mixer, or mix briskly by hand. 
Put all the ingredients in the food processor or mixing bowl.  Process or mix until the mixture is somewhat smooth.
Spoon into the buttered dish and bake about 40 minutes,  or until the edges are set and golden. 
Serve hot or cold, with milk or cream.

  1. Breakfast in bed is such a treat, especially this time of year Kitty! You have me wanting to try your oatmeal pudding, the cottage cheese is such an interesting addition. I love your addition of cinnamon and I bet it would be good with some pecans and raisins too. I love your sweet 'Hello Kitty' mug. ♥

  8. Okay. You've got me on THIS one. I have never, ever heard of anything like this pudding! I'm quite quite skeptical but you have made me want to try it and so I will be adding cottage cheese to my grocery list and giving this a whirl (pun intended). Thanks Kitty!

  9. What an interesting sounding recipe. I can't stomach cooked oatmeal so I won't try this recipe. Breakfast in bed sounds like a real treat!

  10. Your super cute Hello Kitty mug caught my eye right away. When I was younger, I was obsessed with Hello Kitty and collected all things Hello Kitty. The only thing left in my collection are Hello Kitty stickers.

  11. Kitty, breakfast in bed sounds lovely. I never have breakfast in bed because I am too messy. There would be crumbs everywhere! I love that Hello Kitty mug. So adorable! Thank you for the recipe for the cottage cheese oatmeal pudding. Sounds wonderful and healthy too!

  12. Oh, my, this sounds yummy! I wonder if you could add a bit of cocoa to make it chocolate oatmeal? Briana Thomas talks about chocolate oatmeal on her THM blog a lot, and I did try it, and it was so good. I am thinking of maybe modifying your recipe to use THM Gentle Sweet sweetener and adding a bit of cocoa. Hmm...I'll have to think about it. :) Thanks so much for sharing this with us, sweet friend!

  13. It sounds interesting...a serving of cottage cheese is only 1/2 cup. The half recipe serves four you think...I think so, too. What do you do with the remainder? Freeze it?

  24. Oh, yes...I remember that you have breakfast in bed...so you fix whatever you want that morning, put on a tray and run back to bed? I should try that one morning.

  25. I'm snowed in, so am embracing the whole "breakfast in bed" thing, as well as perhaps lunch and dinner. This recipe looks pretty tasty and I just bought some cottage cheese, so I'm all set.
