Accessories / serving

When cottage cheese pie has this type of filling, it is great for eating with cooked or fried chicken, but you can also choose to serve it with other types of meat, such as a good lamb stew.

However, since there is already meat in the pie, it is not necessary to serve it with meat.

It can easily be eaten alone or together with a good coarse salad of, for example, olives, diluted spinach leaves, cherry tomatoes and not least good oil vinegar dressing.

Finally, you can make a salad of sliced ​​cabbage and other slightly coarse vegetables such as carrots or baked cherry tomatoes.

In the winter months, you may prefer to serve it with vegetables.
