    In Defense Of Cottage Cheese

    Cottage cheese is so much better than it has any right to be.

    Cottage cheese gets a bad rap, probably because it's considered a diet food.

    People really swear by it.

    It's probably true that anything recommended by Elizabeth Taylor is either something to emulate or carefully avoid.

    Commercials like this one don't help much.

    "Knudsen cottage cheese is high in protein, yet still low in fat."

    "Which brings new meaning to the term 'cottage cheese thighs'."

    Some feel so negatively about cottage cheese that they have to use caps lock to express their emotions about it.

    On some level, you can't blame them: It's a weird food.

    But you can actually use it in a lot of things.

    In bread.

    Or just ON bread.

    You can even make your own, if you're into that sort of thing.

    It's most famous for pairing well with fruit.

    (Though there are people out there who find this even more repulsive than regular cottage cheese.)

    Some people even go so far as to add ketchup to it.

    In fact, there are people who stockpile cottage cheese.

    Even though it's a little bland looking...

    And yeah, the texture is sort of bizarre...

    There are so many brands and types to choose from!

    Cottage cheese is so classic it is even referenced in a nursery rhyme.

    It's been pleasing people for generations.

    Bottom line: If it's good enough for a baby, it's good enough for you.

    Loving it.

    So pleased.
