What's the weirdest thing you eat?

We all know I don't do "weird" foods. I just can't! That time in Thailand where they were serving bugs and soggy fish? I almost threw up all over the table. When we went to Korea and I was supposed to be all Korean-like and eat my mother land's food? Uh, yeah, no. Rice and beef only, please and thanks. Fortunately, The Dizzle learned preeettttyyyy early on about my pickiness selectiveness when he invited me over on one of our first dates for "Chinese Food" and it turned out to be PRAWNS. <--- uhhhh.... just no. But, of course, I was trying to impress him and make him think I was all adventurous, so I ate one (after picking off all the legs. shudder.).

The Dizzle, on the other hand? Well, he eats scorpions. Enough said.

Anyway. You get the point. Normal eater. Don't eat weird things.

But THEN, last night, as I was making this dish that I've been eating ever since I can remember, I realized just how weird it actually is.

Before I tell you exactly what's in it, let me just express how much I love it. Like loooovveee it. I would eat it every day if I didn't care about my ass size, I really would. I refrain from telling many people about it because they usually give me the most disgusted and confused face you can imagine. It's been a dish that my family has eaten since forever!

Are you ready for this?

It's called: "COTTAGE CHEESE LOAF".

Even the name sounds disgusting, doesn't it?

How it looks doesn't help my case, either.

Here's what's in it:

1 stick of butter (melted)
6 eggs
1 packet of Onion Soup Mix
32 oz cottage cheese
1/2 cup pecans - grinded
6-7 cups of Special K

You literally just mix it all up, cover it in a glass dish with aluminum foil, throw it in the oven at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes, take off the foil and bake for another 20, then voila!

Cottage Cheese Loaf.

I'm not gonna lie, it kind of looks like vomit pre-baked:


And well, it kind of looks like vomit post-baked, too:


So there ya have it. Cottage Cheese Loaf. Pair this loaf with mashed potatoes, gravy, and corn?? Oh dear heavens, look out sweatpants!

But, here's the moral of this (not really) story! I need to remember that though something can LOOK disgusting, it can actually turn out to be your FAVORITE thing in the world!

If I weren't so lazy I'd do a link-up here so everyone can share their weirdest, yet-you-can't-stop-eating-it, food/meal. Feel free to share in the comments! Also feel free to write up the recipe too so that maybe, juuussttt maybe I can try it. No guarantees, though.

Bon appetit!

xoxo

  1. That does sound odd indeed but I would probably have to say the raw sea-urchin I tried in Alaska!

  2. Even though it looks sort of like the worst vom ever, I am almost certain I would love it...this is coming from someone who eats a whole bag of doritos with scoops of cottage cheese on it. Luuuurve cottage cheese! If I make this I will let you know if I eat it all by myself haha.

  4. This may be the most Adventist post ever. A close second to your post concerning banquets. Lol, I love my mommy's version of this though. If it was on the after church menu on a Saturday I was a haaaaapy girl!

  6. We tried fried scorpions here, too. And they were pretty good actually. We've also tried like every animal organ ever it seems, pig face and nose and all that crawls, swims or floats in the sea. Oh Asia. We're not huge fans of most of that stuff, though. But I will say that I LOVE, like am obsessed with, clams. I can eat them like popcorn. They're delicious here and stir fried with red pepper and garlic. Although, I guess that's not that weird. I also LOVE sesame toasted seaweed which people in the States think is strange. And green tea lattes, yum! Man, I've been in Asia too long! The other day I walked by the raw seafood tanks and thought in my head "Mmmm." Ya. I've been here way too long!!
