Strawberries and Cream Cheesecake Pancakes

I find that some foods I just can’t eat by themselves…cottage cheese is one of those.  Luckily, I finally found something I can use it in…pancakes!

Cottage Cheese

Cottage cheese is a considered a fresh cheese that has a slightly acidic mild flavor.  Cottage cheese is made when the whey and curd are separated. The curd makes up cottage cheese. Cottage cheese is a good source of calcium but much of that is lost when the whey and curd is separated, so calcium is often added.

It’s a good source of protein, riboflavin, phosphorus and selenium.
