Cottage Mashed Potatoes


My mother-in-law found this recipe some time ago and tends to make them on a special family get-togethers. These put regular mashed potatoes to shame. I'm not a gravy person anyway, so these potatoes are just my style. Scrumptious on their own.

They are sooo good and have been another pregnancy craving of mine. I asked Francie for the recipe a bit ago and finally plan to make them this weekend. YUM!

4 cups warm mashed potatoes (without added milk and butter)
2 cups small curd cottage cheese (drained)
3/4 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon grated onion
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted


In a bowl, combine potatoes, cottage cheese, sour cream, onion, salt and pepper. Transfer to a greased 2-qt. baking dish. Drizzle with butter.

Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Bake five minutes longer or until heated through.

(Note: We have found these can tend to be a bit runny when they first come out of the oven. Not to worry - as they cool they will firm up a bit although they are meant to be super creamy).
