I happen to love cottage cheese, and decided that a delicious and creamy toast was the perfect way to feature this simple ingredient in a new way. Everyone loves butter or cream cheese on toast, so why not add a spread of cottage cheese instead? It’s creamy, light, salty, and provides the perfect base for fruit.

I drizzled a bit of fresh honey on top for a touch of extra sweetness, which was divine. You can use your favorite brand of store-bought honey, but if you can find local honey from a beekeeper, definitely try it out!  Your local farmers market or health food store will likely carry honey from near by, so support your local beekeepers if you can.

  • Strawberries – the absolute best when they are in season, if they grow in your area.
  • Cottage Cheese – you can use non-fat, 2%, or 4% cottage cheese, whatever you prefer!
  • Raw Honey: We use our own honey, straight out of the beehives for us!  As beekeepers, we have plenty of raw honey so I try to use it in all my recipes instead of sugar.  I’d recommend trying a local farmers market to find the best raw honey in your area. Or else, this raw organic honey online here is the next best thing.
  • Jam or Preserves – I like this jam for a super delicious flavor, and the jars are so darn cute – I save them and reuse!
  • Bread for Toasting – use any kind you like, or a gluten free version if you have a gluten allergy.

Is There an Alternative to Honey?

Yes, you can substitute out the honey in this recipe for agave nectar or maple syrup. I prefer agave nectar, it’s my go-to kitchen sweetener because it’s absolutely delicious, and buying organic agave is crazy inexpensive online (compared to other organic sweeteners).  It also bakes well, so I like to add it to my baked goods.

How Do You Make Cottage Cheese Toast Recipe with Strawberries?

  1. Toast your bread to an even golden brown.
  2. Once toasted, spread the cottage cheese on the toast first. Then spread the jam and drizzle the honey.
  3. Top the toast with freshly sliced fruit.
