This sandwich incited a near riot in our house.
After asking which image G-Dawg thought looked best for the opening shot for this post, my husband nearly lost his mind. In only the best and most sarcastic way.
With a flourish of his hand and a big old smile, he incredulously declared, “You KNOW the cottage cheese sandwich ALWAYS has chipped beef on it! This isn’t right! You have to do away with it, now! Be gone? And if not chipped beef (you know what chipped beef I’m talking about, the cheapest stuff in the deli aisle) then at least bacon. Come on, what are you thinking?”
And then the final blow, ” I can’t endorse this. I’ll be commenting on the blog.” Oh really? Bring it big guy.
Of all of the times my husband has made this sandwich, and he’s been making it a lot lately (hence why I was inspired to even post about the darn thing because it’s so oddball) sure, I’ve witnessed the chipped beef version a few times. But there have been plenty of times when it’s been a bit naked ala veggie focused.
Today’s version is simple. Go to the larder and use whatever you’ve got.
I like cottage cheese with pineapple. Great combo. I like cottage cheese with ham and raspberry jam. Yep, that works too. Anything you can layer on a piece of toasted bread, a slather of cottage cheese and top it with your latest craving and you have a sandwich. Just make sure you bring the napkins.

My wife made me a cottage cheese sandwich and I was absolutely impressed! I think I could eat this every day, with variations. It is delicious and healthy. Thank you!
Since I like Cottage Cheese with Tomatoes, Cukes and Onions, for breakfast, I’d LOVE this, as well, for any meal. And, anything with avocado HAS to be good. I’m in! I’ll try this on toasted Dave’s Killer Thin-Sliced Good Seed Bread!

That sounds amazing!! Enjoy!
This is amazing. I love cottage cheese so much my coworkers make fun of me – I have to try this.

Looks delicious! I love cottage cheese, but never thought of doing this!
Yummy! I bet ricotta would work well too. I like to do almost the same thing except a fried egg instead of the cottage cheese.
me too with the egg addition ( fried or hard bolied ahead of time), and if I’m doing it quick and easy I will usually a bit thicker and less messy like goat cheese or hummus. Perhaps straining the cottage cheese ahead of time would help… at least the cottage cheese we tend to have here in the states would make for a drippy sandwich
It’s crazy how something so simple can be so innovative. Thanks so much for the idea, can’t wait to try it!
This looks as goos as it looks simple! Thank you :-)
Sending this to my cottage cheese loving parents. I know that sounds silly, but I have so many memories of my parents making pears and cottage cheese, cottage cheese sandwiches etc. I personally don’t get it, but the rest of the world does, so therefore I must support everyone else.
