Cottage Cheese Chive Mix ( Mieszanka )

Monica H


My mother made this for us at least twice a week when we were kids. It is so easy, so yummy, and so filling! Now, as an adult, I make it for myself all the time; it is a perfect treat for my Sunday mornings either as, or with, breakfast! The best is this on some fresh bread... yum!

In Polish my mom called this: "mieszanka", which literally means "a mixture".

Lately I have been experimenting with putting different spices in it, to see how it alters the flavor. Paprika and curry do nicely; experiment yourself and see what you come up with!

I hope you enjoy!

1Chop up about 3 or 4 stems of chives.
