Cottage Cheese Cakes with Garlic Green Sauce

I know the title is about as unglamourous as you can get, but trust me on this one. And especially if you're looking for something easy to throw together to hold back the hordes as you prepare the big special dinner, this easy peasy recipe is it.

Toss a carton (15oz) of cottage cheese with 2 eggs and 3 tablespoons flour and blend well and then pan fry. Voila! Super tasty and crowd pleasing! Usually I spoon over some sort of garlic and greens puree whether its fancy with basil or some cooked swiss chard. Either way, it always pleases.

This is a great weeknite dinner as well, don't confine it to brunch!

Oh, and happy solstice, yule and christmas!

Cottage Cheese Cakes with Garlic Green Sauce
(serves 3-4)

1 container cottage cheese (15 oz)
2 eggs
3 tablespoons flour
olive oil for cooking

1 clove garlic
1/2 cup cooked greens (spinach or swiss chard work well)

Combine cottage cheese, eggs and flour until well mixed. Season with salt and pepper. Heat a skillet or cast iron flat top over medium heat for 3-4 minutes. Add enough oil to the pan to coat and spoon in dollops of cottage cheese mix, flattening them down somewhat to make cakes. Brown on each side and keep done ones warm in the oven as you finish the batter.

Meanwhile, puree garlic with cooked greens, adding a little water as needed to create a puree. Serve over cottage cheese cakes.
