Cottage Cheese Spread

  • 1 lb Large Curd Cottage Cheese
  • 2 tbsp Caraway Seeds
  • 2 tbsp Chives (finely chopped)
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce (soy sauce may be substituted)
  • Light Cream
  • 1 Sliced Mini-Loaf Rye Bread (rye crackers work just as well)
  • Stuffed Olive Slices (parsley sprigs may be substituted)
  • Salt
  • Black Pepper

This should be prepared at least 1 day ahead of time before serving for best results.

Mix the cottage cheese with just enough light cream to make a spreading consistency. Stir in salt, black pepper, caraway seeds, chives, and worcestershire sauce. Put into a container with a lid that seals real well. When ready to serve, spread evenly on a slice of rye bread and garnish with a slice of stuffed olive.
