Did you know that June is National Dairy Month? I have to admit I had never heard of such a thing! But it is a pretty cool time to enjoy all that is dairy, I am surely up to a month celebrating some of my favorite food, aren't you? I can go on and on about my love of all things dairy... but instead, I will tell you a bit more about one of my favorite dairy items, cottage cheese! Are you a big cottage cheese fan like I am? It is great for breakfast, lunch or dinner or a snack. You can use it in all sorts of recipes. 
I recently had the chance to celebrate National Dairy Month, by coming up with a favorite recipe using cottage cheese. Cottage cheese is packed with protein, Hood® Country Style Cottage Cheese is rich, creamy and delicious. You can enjoy it in so many ways, as a topping, a dip, an ingredient or as a healthy snack. I wanted a recipe that did not mask the flavor of the cottage cheese, a recipe that really let the cheese shine. 

When I was a child I remember coming home from school and I was famished, as my mother made dinner I would ask for a snack. My mother would make me cottage cheese on toast, and I loved it. My favorite version of the treat my mom would make for me is a Cinnamon Vanilla Berry Cottage Cheese Toast. It was slightly sweet, and very creamy and really was enjoyable. 

Now I have a daughter and she too comes home looking for a snack, when dinner's not ready for a good bit. I enjoy making this quick and simple snack that my mom would make for me as a child, and my daughter loves the toast as much as I did.  I just love that I get to share something I enjoyed so much as a child with my child, and I hope one day (in the far future) she will share this recipe with her children.  I feel good about giving her this snack because every Hood® product boasts a rich and creamy texture for a tasty snack that’s filled with protein. Check out the super easy recipe, and make this treat for your family. 

Cinnamon Vanilla Berry Cottage Cheese Toast


1/4 cup Hood® Country Style Cottage Cheese
Fresh Blueberries 
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon powdered sugar
2 drops vanilla
Thick cut toast


Toast bread set aside. Mix cottage cheese, and 2 drops of vanilla in a separate bowl. I drip two drops on to a teaspoon to have better control of the vanilla, less is best in this situation. In separate brown mix cinnamon and powdered sugar, put aside. Spread a nice sized portion of cottage cheese over toast then top with blueberries and lightly dust with the cinnamon/powdered sugar mixture, and enjoy! This recipe should make a few toast servings. If you do not use the whole mixture, cover and refrigerate

Ohh, the creaminess of the cottage cheese, vanilla extract, and berries topped on toast. It is simple but refreshing and delicious. Can you believe that my husband had never ever tried cottage cheese before this dish? Well, I have to tell you that my husband can be a picky eater at times, so when he tried the cottage cheese for the first time, I did not know how he would react... He really enjoyed it, and even mentioned that he was missing out all these years. You can also make the toast with any of the Hood® Cottage Cheese flavors.

If you like cottage cheese on the sweet side or the savory side, Hood® has the cottage cheese for you. From the classic, Hood® Country Style Cottage Cheese, and the Hood® Cottage Cheese with Pineapple or the Hood® Cottage Cheese with Chive and so many other flavors in between!  Would you like to make this for the family, do you think this is something they would enjoy?
