“Cheese Danish” WW Style

17 May

I remember visiting my Aunt Jo in Los Angeles when I was a teenager – and she would make me a faux cheese Danish for breakfast. She explained it was from the Weight Watchers program (now known as WW) that she was on – and all I remember was that it was delicious! I’ve tried to duplicate that treat over the years – without success – until my friend Esther, gifted me the original Weight Watchers Cook Book (1966) by Jean Nidetch, when I went to work for WW. At last I had the “official” recipe – and it’s just as good as I remember. I like more cinnamon sprinkled on top! You don’t need to be on on a diet to enjoy this sweet imposter.

Cottage Cheese Danish

1 slice crisp toast

2 ounces cottage cheese

1/8 teaspoon cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon vanilla

½ page granulated sugar substitute (or other sweetener e.g. Truvia)

Mix cottage cheese with cinnamon, vanilla and sugar substitute. Spread on toast and place under broiler until warmed through.

    I always have loved this – especially in the summer when I’d add fresh sliced peaches to the top!
