"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."

"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."
"we loved this...I made it a few months back an forgot to rate. Am making it again for our lunch with friends tomorrow...funny how mashed taties can taste so fantastic!"
"A great 'do ahead' dish. I also added in a little garlic and some chopped parsley. Thanks Mirj for a 'keeper' :)"
"Mine came out mushy too and family didn't think they were bad, but nothing special. Must be a knack to get them to puff. "
