I followed the ingredients as listed in the recipe. I did need to shorten the cooking time, so I microwaved the potatoes for a few minutes prior to putting them in the oven. I used lactaid cottage cheese and it worked fine.
I used 2 small Carisma potatoes (a low GI potato) and instead of wrapping them in foil I microwaved them for 6 minutes and while that was happening I discovered I didn't have any cottage cheese so went to use ricotta but not quite enough of it so mixed it with a low fat cream cheese and topped with a sprinkle of paprika and with a side salad of greens made for a quick and delicious lunch, thank you Peter made for Aussie/Kiwi Recipe Swap #63 April 2012.
A kick it up baked potato that you are going to love. Even if you don't use cottage cheese, you will still enjoy the flavor from the herbs. I did not melt the butter. I mixed the ingredients together and put it into the potato where I cut a wedge out then put the wedge back on top. Less mess if you don't melt the butter.

*Made for Australia/NZ Swap #48* . Followed directions but baked just 1 potato since it was such a monster ! I cut a wedge from the top and filled the cavity with the herb mixture. Baked for 90 minutes, which allowed the buttery herbs to soak into the potato. Super yummy ! Thanks, Peter.
YUM!! All filled with the creamy goodness of herbs and cottage cheese! This was a great choice for DH and I to have as a side to our steak dinner. Very tasty! Thumbs up from me!

I'm a good fan of cottage cheese, so these were right up my alley! Simple recipe, great taste, & something I'll be making again! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed as a PRESSIE in the Aus/NZ 12 Days of Christmas Recipe Swap]
Great potatoes! Simple to make and very tasty. Cooked perfectly and the cottage cheese was a nice change to the regular topping of sour cream. My husband really enjoyed these and has requested them for lunch over the weekend. Updated to add- make sure you cook some extras as they are wonderful reheated the next day for a super quick lunch.

This is a really tasty, simple way to cook potatoes on the BBQ. I love cottage cheese and really enjoyed it topped on these potatoes. Instead of dried herbs I used a handful of chopped up spicy basil from my garden. The flavour was excellent. Thanks for a great recipe!
I fixed this for a light supper along with a salad tonight and thoroughly enjoyed it! My DH doesn't like thyme so I used rosemary. Thank you Peter!
