This loaf is a family favorite, full of flavor and yummy too. My mother came up with this one when we were short of other foods in the house.

  • Spread the cottage cheese mixture into the prepared pan and bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 to 40 minutes or until bubbly and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

this was just okay for me. I felt it needed more so added a bit of tomato paste and sage/oregano. It turned out fine but was nothing too special. Read More

When I made this for my husband last week I told him the recipe looked decidedly strange and if it was awful he could make himself a sandwich for supper. Well there was no sandwich that night. He finished what I gave him and wanted more. So did I. This will become a regular in our house. Read More

I really loved this. The only change that I made was to use branflakes instead of cornflakes (they were what I had on hand) but I think I'll keep that as it gave it a nice colour and flavour. I made this also for my husband who loves meat (meat makes me gag) as something we could eat together but he said "It looks like chopped liver". Argh! The one meaty thing he doesn't like. I loved it: 5 stars! Read More

Surprisingly it does taste like real meatloaf. We do eat beef but I was interested in trying this. I didn't tell my BF what the ingredients were at first but he thought it was meatloaf that I had made with cornflakes instead of bread crumbs and he thought I had added cheese. When I told him what was in it he said he was wondering why it was such a light color. But it was an interesting dish. Read More

This is a great recipe. I grew up eating cottage cheese loaf and love it. I add a bit of brewers yeast to add some nutrition and flavor. I also use a bit more cottage cheese. In addition I broil the loaf for a couple of minutes to give it a nice and crispy top. Read More

I've been making cottage cheese loaf for years this is NOT the best one! It's missing celery pecans sage or some kind of seasoning..... and you CAN use bread crumbs instead of cornflakes....Google cottage cheese loaf for a better recipe!:) Read More

Instead of cornflakes use Special K. You could even try Wheates. I'd use my leftovers for sandwiches in my lunch pail. Read More
