Yesterday I mentioned an article that discussed healthy snacks. One of the good, easy snack ideas, according to this piece, was to mix cottage cheese with applesauce and cinnamon.
I used to make something like that (minus the applesauce) for my children when they were kids, but I would make it into an open-face sandwich. They loved it so much they still talk about it. Whether you make it for lunch or a snack, it’s amazingly easy and takes just a few minutes. Here’s how:
Warm, Open-Face Cottage Cheese Sandwich
1 slice whole wheat or multi-grain bread
1/4 to 1/3 cup cottage cheese
a few drops pure vanilla extract
Toast the bread lightly to give it a surface crispiness. Mix the cottage cheese with a few drops of vanilla extract to taste. Spread the cheese on the toasted bread. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Preheat an oven or toaster oven to 375 degrees. Place the sandwich on a small baking sheet or ovenproof dish and place in the oven or toaster oven. Bake for 5-6 minutes or until hot. Makes 1
