    I use whatever I have to hand, quark needs a lot of seasoning (IMO!) and gives a smoother texture than cottage cheese but both are good. I've also used the smooth cottage cheese which gives a similar texture to quark.
    I'd say use whichever's "use by" date is closest!

    Lol at Jaylou!

    I havent made a quiche out of Quark before, so will try that. I like Cottage cheese with chives and onion when I make a quiche, but I find both of them needs a lot of flavouring.
    No help I know, just rambling...lol...sorry!

    I find that the quark 'splits' when cooking so not really great stick to cottage cheese or the quarl alternative that they sell in Lidl which is like philly works ok too.

    I have used cottage cheese and quark but I prefer quark as it's smoother.
    I beat it really well with the eggs - I use a tub of quark with six eggs, and used like this the quark has never "split" for me.
    I do season quite well with salt, pepper and mixed herbs.
    I use any veg on hand, mushrooms, tomatoes and bacon or ham.
    It really tastes yum and I can never make (or eat) enough!!

    I usually use quark and it's lovely, but have a cottage cheese one in the oven right now, as an experiment. I bought CC specifically to try it to see the difference. Will report my findings after my dinner/tea/supper *delete as appropriate.
