This is major comfort food in our house. I usually make this as a side dish to go with fish, but my kids like it all on its own.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the potatoes, sour cream or yogurt, cottage cheese, onion, salt and pepper, and place into a greased 2-quart casserole.
  2. Pour on melted butter.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until puffed and golden.

Yum! Another great recipe from Mirjam! :0) Nearly my whole family loved it (a major feat). Mine never really puffed, I don't know why. Best guess is that my mashed potatoes were too soggy to begin with, or it could be that my cottage cheese was low-fat (runnier?). I just used leftover mashed potatoes, which had been whipped with canned chicken broth (instead of my normal stick or butter) to make them lower fat, so I left out the salt and pepper called for in the recipe. Even though it didn't look as pretty as it might of, the taste was excellent, and I will definitely make this again!

Very yummy. I used instant potatoes and they tasted wonderful! No one said anything about them being instant and usually DH does. I didn't have a 2 qt casseole so I used 2 1.5 qt glass loaf pans and adjusted the recipe to fill them both. This was great with baked fish (I used a baked clam recipe but used fish instead) and peas for our shabbat meal. I had the leftovers today and put some grated cheddar cheese on top and it was very yummy. Maybe I do this in the future. Thanks for posting.
