Leftover Sweet Cottage Cheese Buns

Sweet Cottage Cheese Buns: Delicious and Kid Friendly

Cottage cheese is one of those ingredients that you either love or hate. These delicious sweet cottage cheese buns are perfect even for those that do no like cottage cheese – like me. One summer we had a friend bring cottage cheese and peaches over for our kids to try, which was his favorite dessert. Our kids were not huge fans, so we had a lot of cottage cheese leftover. Because I do not like to throw out food, I had to come up with a way to use it. Thus, these sweet cottage cheese buns made it onto our supper menu. They have become a favorite in our house. And my oldest son always asks if I can buy cottage cheese so that we can make these. So cottage cheese seems to make it onto my grocery list a lot more than it used to (which was never).

We love to have these as a side dish to any soup – especially creamy ham and vegetable soup. Our kids love to eat these warm with melted butter and slices of cheese. They also love to have these for breakfast with eggs and bacon. These buns are the perfect addition to any meal. So you can make these delectable buns made with healthy cottage cheese for breakfast, lunch or supper. Your kids will thank you! And comment below with how you served these delicious buns.
