Körözött (Hungarian cottage cheese spread)

Looking for something a little different to have for lunch or a snack? If you haven’t tried this before than let me tell you, once you have had your first bite you will find it hard to stop and you will probably make this a lot. This spread is just delicious & totally addictive. For me it captures the flavours of Hungary in one dish and is quite simply Hungarian comfort food for your soul.

There is really only one thing to keep an eye out for and that is to not use a watery cottage cheese as it won’t turn out very nice at all.  Fresh is always best. Whether you prefer cows milk or goats milk cottage cheese I will leave it up to you.

Simply have it with some nice crusty bread but you can pretty much experiment with what else you have with it. I generally garnish with a bit of fresh dill, but tomatoes go great with it as well. Happy snacking.

    This was absolutely delicious. I am thinking twice about cream cheese and make this instead.
