What can you make with farmer's cheese?

Bought some farmer's cheese by accident. It's very bland unless mixed with green onion or something. Anyone have ideas?

First thing that comes to mind is my dear grandmother's sweet Polish cheese bread we called "Ko-itz." (I never knew how it was properly spelled until the internet came along.) She made the filling very thick and a slice spread with real butter was absolute heaven! I never got the recipe from her as I was too young to appreciate her wealth of knowledge about so much...but this recipe comes close to what I remember - with exception of the raisins which my grandmother did not include and I don't use because DH prefers without. (And of course as the wife of a simple farmer who farmed with a team of horses until he retired, Grandma never owned a spring form pan, LOL, so I can say that particular piece of equipment is not absolutely necessary to the recipe. Hers was a free formed 'wheel' baked on a flat pan - in a wood fired cook stove no less.)

Make lasagna, or maybe use it in something like stuffed pasta shells. Little onion, garlic, tomato and you can liven up any bland cheese :)

Anne, thank you for the recipe, it sounds good but I think I will take the easy way out and do lasagna. Really sounds delish though.
Thanks Maureen for being my brain right now.

But of course! Lasagna sounds great to me too. Enjoy, Carla.
