Cottage Cheese Pancakes

Not a very common recipe for some reason, but tastes good and is pretty healthy.
  • You will need:
  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 egg
  • salt or sugar, olive oil or butter, sour cream or maple syrup
Mix cottage cheese, egg, and salt or sugar (whichever you prefer) in a bowl. Mix well, and start adding flour to it till it\'s thick enough to form into small balls. You don\'t have to add all the flour, but you don\'t want them too thin. Put a frying pan on high heat, add cooking oil, margarine, or butter to it (generously). When the oil starts bubbling, carefully place your pancakes on the pan, one by one, leaving some room between them so that they don\'t merge together. In a couple of minutes flip them over. Serve just like that, with sugar and sour cream, with maple syrup, or with salt, pepper, and cheese (feel free to add dill and green onions to the batter then). If you make them thick, they\'re pretty good cold too, sliced. The ones on the picture are made with a lot of flour, and shaped with hands. You can make them a little thinner, and just drop globs of batter into the pan with a spoon.
