Many remember the delicate taste of semolina casserole from childhood. It was served in kindergarten, school cafeteria and even cooked at home. With delicious cherry jam, it was an incredible treat. Even the most capricious kids will not be able to refuse it. We offer a successful recipe for cheese casserole, which your family will appreciate.


Cottage cheese-semolina casserole for breakfast is a good start to the day. The dish diversifies the menu, and helps to get useful substances from cottage cheese and semolina for those who do not really like these products in their natural form.

To make the casserole tasty, the cottage cheese should not be pasty, but crumbly, granular.

Also, check out our tips to help make the casserole even tastier:

  • It is better to choose homemade cottage cheese or with a fat content of at least 5. The less fat cottage cheese, the more binding ingredients in the form of semolina and eggs must be added.
  • The dough must rest for at least 10 minutes before baking. This is necessary so that the semolina swells well, takes on all the moisture, and the casserole does not fall apart.
  • Alternatively, the shaped dough can be placed in a cold oven. While it warms up, the semolina will just have time to swell.
  • Curd-semolina casseroles are cut only cold. When hot, they will stick to the knife and crumble.
  • It is not worth taking the casserole out of the hot form, it will lose its porous structure.
  • In a metal form, the bottom and sides must be lubricated with oil and sprinkled with semolina. For silicone, this is not necessary.

And remember, the main thing is to choose high-quality and fresh products. Cottage cheese should not be sour in taste and too liquid. If you want to make baking as low-calorie as possible, buy 1% fat cottage cheese, but add more eggs.
