Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    2 cups cottage cheese
    2 cans (approx. 14 ounces) tuna, drained
    1/2 cup oats
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon pepper
    1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
    1/4 cup finely chopped celery
    2 egg whites (or whole eggs but changes cal content)

Directions

* Serves 4*

Combine cottage cheese, tuna, 1/4 cup oats, salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, celery, and onion. Blend tuna cheese mixture into the beaten eggs; pour into a greased 1-quart baking dish. Combine remaining oats with 2 tablespoons of butter(if desired, I don't use the butter) and sprinkle over top of casserole. Set in a large pan of hot water and bake at 375° for 30 minutes or until firm.

I like to spice it up sometimes too and add red pepper flakes, and other vegetables. I have a new oven and a quick note, it doesn't cook as well with, I have decreased the amount of tuna to 10oz. Hope it works for you. I love cooking with cottage cheese as a great cheesy high protein substitute.

  • I am making this tonight. We need low sodium & cottage cheese & W Sauce have a lot of sodium. So, I am subbing Mrs. Dash for the S&P. I would like to see more similar recipes. This makes a great low carb meal on a day that I have already maxed out my carbs. - 9/23/10
