What are your favorite uses for fromage blanc?

Picked up a couple containers at the supermarket because it was on sale; I'm a sucker for markdowns! Think I'll make a flammeküchen with one container, but not sure about the other. Open to sweet or savory.
Ideas? Suggestions?

Tartine has a fromage blanc bavarian recipe that's pretty delicious, especially when apricots are in season. It's cheesecake-y but much lighter.

As a snack or part of lunch.
With tomatoes.
With a garnish of jam or fresh fruit
Spread on dark bread (pumpernickel or black rye) with lashings of smoked paprika or freshly ground pepper and a side dish of radishes
In a kugel (noodle pudding) with either raisins & sugar or mushrooms and spring onions

Savory noodle kugel sounds really yum! Thanks, Nancy!

Here are two savory kugel versions which are good templates, one a riff on a standard sweet Ashkenazi kugel, one on Italian maccheroni frittata:
