We are a big cereal-eating family...I mean at least 12 boxes of it are in the house at all times...and there are only four of us. However, there are some mornings when I know the kids need something a little more substantial. On mornings like that, I make these Cottage Cheese Pancakes. They are not too sweet, unless you really pour on the sugar, and they have the added protein of the cottage cheese. My mother started making these pancakes for us when I was in high school. It is a tried and true recipe for sure.
cottage cheese, eggs, sugar, milk, flour, cinnamon, salt, butter, blueberries (optional)
Put all ingredients in bowl, in no special order.
Cottage Cheese Pancakes
1 cup cottage cheese
2 Tbsp. sugar, plus more for sprinkling
1/4 cup milk
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. butter, cut up into small pieces
Heat griddle. In medium mixing bowl, combine cottage cheese, eggs, sugar, milk, flour, cinnamon, salt and cut up butter. Add in blueberries, if desired. Drop by 1/4 cupfuls onto greased griddle (I use Pam or butter). Cook until golden and flip. Remove to plate and sprinkle with sugar. Makes about 12 pancakes.
