Paula Deen's Lean: Cottage Potatoes

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?!?

Serves 4


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!!

  1. I get very iffy about cottage has that "already been eaten once" look to it.

  2. Found you on SITS & had to stop by. I HEART Paula Dean, but the thought of eating her food scares the heck out of me. But now....a healthier alternative. I'm excited!

    Sassily Yours...

  3. Potatoes and cheese: doesn't get any better than than, unless bacon and onion are involved. :-) Thanks for the recipe.
