Cottage Cheese Sandwiches

If you have had cottage cheese sandwiches at any point in your life, you already know what a low calorie delight these sandwiches can be. If not, you are in for a pleasant surprise. The combination of cottage cheese and orange marmalade on grilled bread is really quite good! When I make these, I enjoy using sourdough bread, but feel free to use any favorite sandwich bread.

This is, of course, assuming you like cottage cheese. If you don’t, this sandwich probably isn’t for you.

The original recipe for cottage cheese sandwiches was actually called, “Cottage Cheeselade Sandwiches“.  This recipe that I have dates back to the 1930s. I found it in my Grandma’s recipe collection and the memories of these tasty delights came flooding back. Best of all, it’s quite a low fat sandwich and a meatless one to boot1

Below the cottage cheese sandwiches recipe is a screen shot from the pamphlet the recipe was in. The pamphlet is called, “New ways to serve creamed cottage cheese“. Based on one of the picture ads inside, I believe it was put out by a company called Bowman Dairy Company.

Cottage Cheese Sandwiches Recipe

Spread bread, sliced for sandwiches, with seasoned creamed cottage cheese. Over this spread a layer of orange marmalade and cover with another slice of buttered bread. Press the slices firmly together and toast sandwiches immediately before serving. Cut into any desired shape and serve.

What is Creamed Cottage Cheese?

Creamed cottage is cottage cheese that has had cream added. This is the kind your normally find. This is different from dry curd cottage cheese. Dry curd cottage cheese has no cream added and is dry and crumbly. As you’ve seen, the above recipe calls for seasoned cottage cheese. If you cannot find any or just don’t have it on hand, following is a very good recipe for seasoning your own cottage cheese. This recipe is quite tasty when used for the cottage cheese sandwiches.
