What To Do With Homemade Ricotta Cheese

I’ve been on a huge ricotta cheese kick lately. I’ve been making a big batch about every other week (super easy) and eating it with everything. I mean EVERYTHING! Besides the lemon, ricotta, blueberry pancakes and the ricotta apricot cake  I posted about recently, I’ve been eating it spread on cucumber slices, mixed in with my mashed potatoes, and even on my sandwiches.

My favorite way to eat ricotta though, is spread on a piece of toast and topped with whatever I’m craving at that moment. Here’s some of my favorite recent combinations.

  1. Found through Pinterest. :) If you top with strawberries, are you just using straight up ricotta? Stirring something in like honey?

    • I just do straight ricotta. Especially with the super juicy strawberries that are available right now. That’s all I need! Honey would taste great though I’m sure!

  2. Beautiful! I love to eat ricotta with honey, stone fruit and smoked sea salt :)

  3. Great post — nicely done. The first time I made ricotta, I couldn’t believe how easy it was.

  4. Great combinations. I can’t decide which I want to try first! Pinning this to my board :)

  5. A la ricota la mezclas con otro queso o la utilizas sola??
    Excelente pagina web!!

  6. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both
    equally educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is something too few men and women are speaking intelligently
    about. I’m very happy I came across this in my hunt for something regarding this.

  7. First of all I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick question that I’d like
    to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your
    mind prior to writing. I have had difficulty clearing my thoughts
    in getting my ideas out there. I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the
    first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?
    Many thanks!
