There is nothing fancy or spectacular about this recipe for Cottage Potatoes. But it does have a few things going for it; it is easy, it is healthy and it tastes pretty good too! If you are looking for an easy potato side, perhaps for the big Turkey Day coming up, then give this recipe a try. It's potatoes and cheese...what's not to love about that?!?
3 large Idaho potatoes
1/2 cup SKIM Milk
1 cup FAT FREE cottage cheese
1/2 onion, diced
Salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Scrub the potatoes, slice them, and put in a pot with water to cover. Boil the potatoes until tender, then drain and mash them with milk. Add the cottage cheese, onion, and salt and pepper to taste. Stir the mixture gently, and then put in a greased casserole. Sprinkle with paprika. Bake, uncovered, for 30 minutes.
I really couldn't mess this one up. As you can see, there is little to do in making this recipe. A little cutting, a little boiling, some mashin' and mixin'....and then you have cottage potatoes! They give a new meaning to the term 'instant potatoes'. So, give these Cottage Potatoes a try. ENJOY!!
