In the subculture of Seventh-day Adventism, most of the churches have a weekly Sabbath-afternoon potluck when every family brings a dish and fellowships together. There are a couple of entrees that are unique to Adventists.

Cereal should only be eaten with milk, not with eggs!” You’d be surprised how great this tastes. Best of all, it’s vegetarian!

I was looking for the Adventist variation of this recipe and I found a great one at TAGnet. Unfortunately, the page does not exist anymore. So, the following is the lost recipe with my adjustments. One named Amy Higner submitted the original recipe. Amy, if you’re reading this, I just want to say, “Thanks!”

SDA Style Kellogg’s Cottage Cheese Loaf

  • 1/4 Cup Butter or Margarine
  • 1 Clove of Garlic
  • 1 Onion
  • 2 Stalks of Celery
  • 2 Tablespoons of an SDA-style Vegetarian Stock like McKay’s Seasoning, Broth, or Worthington Gravy
  • 1 Tablespoon of Soy Sauce
  • 3 Beaten Eggs
  • 1/4 Cup of Milk
  • 1 Cup of Cottage Cheese
  • 3-5 Cups of a “Flakes” Cereal – Most of the time, Adventists use Kellogg’s Special K Cereal. I’m cheap. So, I use generic Corn Flakes
  • 1/4 Cup Pecan Meal, Ground Fine (Optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F
  2. Heat the butter or margarine in a pan
  3. Sauté the garlic and onions until cooked
  4. Add the celery to the pan and sauté until soft
  5. Mix the remaining ingredients in a separate bowl
  6. Add the sautéed vegetables to the bowl
  7. Let the cereal get a little soggy (about 5 minutes)
  8. Place in a generously greased baking pan. It should be 1″-3″ deep. Do not pack. In fact, use a fork to make it fluffy.
  9. Bake at the top rack for 1 – 1 1/2 hour(s)
  10. Cut the loaf into 2″ x 2″ squares
