I’m sure a lot of you are wondering what a nalesniki is, right?
Basically, it’s a crepe. The name nalesniki is the Polish word for pancake or crepe. My husband’s grandmother used to make them for him all the time when he was little. This past weekend he recreated them in our kitchen with these Nalesnikis with Cottage Cheese & Wildberry Jam. They were amazing and I’m sure it won’t be the last time he makes them!
I think the only time I’ve ever had crepes before was from a mall kiosk and I ordered it filled with Nutella. I remember them tasting so good but I never thought I would be able to make them on my own, so I never tried.
When I was thinking of what I was going to make this month that involved cottage cheese , my husband quickly volunteered to make his grandma’s famous nalesnikis filled with cottage cheese.
These nalesnikis would be perfect with just about any kind of topping you choose. I tried mine with some cookie spread, some butter and some maple syrup (not all together!) but I preferred the Wildberry Jam the best. I’m not usually a big jam fan but with the cottage cheese filling it was perfect!
Another one of my favorite ways to eat cottage cheese is with fresh fruit and a little touch of honey. A protein-packed snack that satisfies me until mealtime. Since I like it with fresh fruit I think I may even try it in an Apple & Kale Smoothie next time. I bet it would make it nice and thick. Why didn’t I think of that before?
